Saturday the 4th of December 2021 will be the first-ever conference day of the Punk Scholars Network Netherlands, founded early this year.
It is also the first day of the 4-11 December worldwide conference of the Punk Scholars Network. We organise it jointly with the Denmark/Germany PSN affiliate. Our conference day schedule is complete. So, we have to refer new paper proposals to other days of the global conference.
Unfortunately, because of the coronavirus pandemic, we had to abandon our plan to have a face-to-face event at OCCII, Amstelveenseweg 134 1075 XL Amsterdam. We have decided to split the conference in two.
We will now have a webinar on 4 December, starting at 2pm Central European Time about Punk and (DIY) venues only. But with keynote speakers, a film, a panel discussion and hopefully a livestream (punk band) from a DIY location.
The women in the bands, women in the panels, and all other participants deserve a full face-to-face day in spring 2022 in OCCII, about the main theme Women in punk. A theme too important for a 4 December online webinar. We are looking for a date in spring with hopefully less COVID-19 than now. So stay posted.
See below for the full program of our mini conference/webinar.

Women in Punk
In spring 2022, scholarly papers on women in punk by authors from the Netherlands and from abroad will be read. There will be panels, a film, and food.
And bands: Azijnpisser from Eindhoven, Periot from Arnhem, and Livmoder from Rotterdam, so all from the Netherlands, and Hetze from Belgium. All these four bands include women.
