This fall, Professor Peraino will teach her class, Punk Culture: The Aesthetics and Politics of Refusal, which explores punk's origins, U.S. punk's regional differences, its key movements, its race, class and gender relations, and its ongoing influence on global youth culture. No previous experience studying music is necessary. For more information about this course and other opportunities available in the music department this fall, please visit the Class Roster.
