Curating Resistance: Punk as Archival Method

February 10 - February 11
UCLA Los Angeles, CA 90024 United States

At a time when performative resistances to exploitative mainstream cultural practices are increasingly under attack, punk persists as an important space for cultivating and curating expressive means. Punk’s resistant literacies and performances are often in defiance of institutional rigors that carve exclusionary boundaries. Yet, as punk celebrates its long fortieth birthday, punk’s contested annals are increasingly not only part of but also help shape institutional efforts to exceed canonic representations. Bringing together scholars, musicians, fans, writers, and community members, including…

Yet most such studies match separate…

“When Should Researchers Use Inferential Statistics When Analyzing Data on Full Populations?“ Abstract: Many researchers uncritically use inferential statistical procedures (e.g., hypothesis tests) when analyzing complete population data—a situation in which inference may seem unnecessary. We begin by reviewing and analyzing the most common rationales for employing inferential procedures when analyzing full population data. Two common rationales—having to do with handling missing data and generalizing results to other times and/or places—either lack merit or amount to analyzing sample (not population) data. …

“The Uphill Climb: A Transnational Perspective on Wealth Accumulation among Latino Immigrants in Durham, NC” Abstract: Wealth accumulation is a key dimension of ethno-racial stratification, and, among immigrants, an important indicator of incorporation.  Dramatically low assets among immigrant Latinos is thus a pressing concern, necessitating a better understanding of the social forces that shape wealth assimilation.  Drawing on a survey of Latino immigrants in Durham, NC, I argue for the importance of a transnational perspective on wealth for immigrant populations.  Nationally…
