What’s next?

Article summarising the first week of 'Anarchy in the UK' and explaining what will be covered in week 2.
Congratulations! You’ve completed Week 1 of ‘Anarchy in the UK: A History of Punk from 1976-78’. You’ve reflected on the different meanings of the term ‘punk’ and explored the context in which punk developed, ‘met’ some of the trailblazers, listened to the music, examined the fanzines and analysed the imagery.

Next week you’ll delve into the ways in which punk ‘opened up’ and reimagined society’s approach to issues such as gender, race and class. You’ll reflect on the parallels with today and consider making your own voice heard through writing and imagery by publishing a zine.
