a self-sustaining, recognisable minority who rejected the social, political and religious order installed after 1688. Clustered around this nucleus was a shifting cloud of individuals, families and connexions (kinship and friendship networks focused on an individual or a family) who were drawn into opposition to the established order for various reasons, but were never as resolutely committed as the core group. The nucleus’s subculture was the heart of the Jacobite cause in the three kingdoms and it was able to survive for as long as it did only because of the

navigates a path between what Thomas Pavel dubs the ‘two temptations’ of genre theory: the desire to ‘freeze generic features, reducing them to immutable formulas’ and the desire, exemplified by Maurice Blanchot ( 1959 ), ‘to deny genres any conceptual stability’ whatsoever (Pavel, 2003 : 201).

This discussion draws attention to the narrow parameters of the ‘ethnicity’ framework underpinning this body of work. For if the field’s reception of secondand third-generation African-Caribbean and South Asian

, fanzines offer a crucial resource for constructing a view from within this metropolitan subculture. The formation of a subcultural self contains the production and consumption of music and literature; the appropriation of spaces; interactions with certain persons and groups; body modification strategies through fashion or direct operation on the body itself. As a product of social interaction, selfformation comprises exclusionary acts and group building activities.1 In terms of punk, interpersonal communication is important. This can happen directly as well as indirectly

One purpose of this article is to promote the study of language use/discourses in relation to subcultures/punk, but also to trigger the interest of critical discourse analysts in the study of subcultural texts and discourse because of their potential to undermine hegemonic discourse. -254- When the punks go marching in A critical discourse analysis view on punk In the last few decades

More recently, however, attention has been given to the development of urban ‘subcultures’. Some migrants may decide to ignore and eventually reject their ethnic backgrounds, but others find it a vital resource and those from a common culture can combine to face the challenges of urban life. This is rendered easier if those belonging to the subculture share a common language and religion which

4 Immigrant punk: the struggle for post-modern authenticity Ivan Gololobov I know, I’m stranger in your land I know, ladies and gentlemen I know, I am coming here to stay And take your jobs away.1 Punk is often regarded as a subculture essentially based on the principles of authenticity.2 In most general terms, following Taylor, authenticity is understood as an ability to break external impositions and to express one’s own Self.3 The reverse of this term is coined by Adorno who regards inauthenticity as a situation where ‘something broken is implied’; he

This chapter illustrates how, through sound, the delinquents were able to actively produce a space of their own, both inside and outside the film text. It will argue that the soundscape that they produced was one of

Sixties activism and the liberation of the self
Author: Celia Hughes

Young Lives on the Left is a unique social history of the individual lives of men and women who came of age in radical left circles in the 1960s. Based on a rich collection of oral history interviews, the book follows in-depth approximately twenty individuals, tracing the experience of activist self-making from child to adulthood. Their voices tell a particular story about the shaping of the English post-war self. Championing the oppressed in struggle, the young activists who developed the personal politics of the early 1970s grew up in a post-war society which offered an ever-increasing range of possibilities for constructing and experiencing the self. Yet, for many of these men and women the inadequacy of the social, political and cultural constructions available for social identity propelled their journeys on the left. The creation of new left spaces represented the quest for a construction of self that could accommodate the range of contradictions concerning class, gender, religion, race and sexuality that young activists experienced growing up in the post-war landscape.

An important contribution to the global histories of 1968, the book explores untold stories of English activist life, examining how political experiences, social attitudes and behaviour of this group of social actors (as teenagers, apprentices and undergraduates) were shaped in the changing social, educational and cultural landscape of post-war English society. The final chapters include attention to the social and emotional impact of Women’s Liberation on the left, as told from the perspective of women and men inside the early movement.
