Global Punk Conference -Indonesian Section


Because of the ongoing Covid-19 restrictions placed around international travel, the Punk Scholars Network is using their DIY punk experience to not let that prevent them from holding their popular annual conference and postgraduate symposium. The PSN Steering Group and conference coordinating committee, headed up by Pete Dale, have taken the bold decision to put the conference online for the first time.

As you can imagine this is a mammoth task to coordinate, and our affiliates from around the world have all embraced this idea fully and are busy organizing and coordinating conference events in their countries. You can get more information on the conference here

This week Muhammad Fakhran Al Ramadhan, who is a lecturer at the Universitas Islam 45 Bekasi and our affiliate in Indonesia, sent through a poster promoting the CFP and what he and his colleagues are organizing in Indonesia for the forthcoming PSN 7th International Conference and Post-graduate Symposium. It looks fantastic, with some great keynote speakers, and we are already really excited about ‘virtually’ attending this and the other amazing events that our other affiliates will be organizing and presenting. This is building up to be a truly international conference this December.

I-Pop: International Journal of Indonesian Popular Culture and Communication collaborates with the conference's committee to publish the best-extended paper presented at the Punk Scholars Network 7th Annual International Conference. "Doing Global, Doing Local: Locating 'Subculture' in Indonesia". Especially for papers highlight the issue of Indonesian popular and punk culture or pop works related to Indonesia context.
