Nicholas Smith: Redefining the Punk Scene

Professor Nicholas Smith‘s essay “Punk as Praxis” was featured on the UConn Daily Campus. Professor Smith answers the question of “What is Punk?” in his essay.


“It challenged conformity and complacency. Part of it was a refusal of things, and I think those things still need refusing,” Smith said about the things punk challenged and still need challenging.
