NYU's Class On Punk Is Open To The Public
This summer, NYU's Clive Davis Institute for Recorded Music is offering aclass on punk
contributor (and decorated journalist), founding Flying Lizard, and all-around brilliant ladyVivien Goldman
. The class will be open to anyone who wants to pay the tuition (anyone in the city, that means) and here's a taste of the supplemental readings/screenings: "Music we'll listen to may include The Sex Pistols, the Clash, and the Slits; film screenings may include The Great Rock 'n Roll Swindle and Rude Boy; and readings may be culled from books by Steve Blush and others." (Disclosure: I teach in this particular department as well, but after seeing the zines that she's had her class make, I've wanted to take it myself.) Registration closes tomorrow; more information isat NYU's website
