I recently gave a talk “Punk Rock for Sissies: The Return of Affect in Early 21st Century American Indie Rock” at the AHRC Metamodernism conference at Radboud University in Nijmegen, Netherlands. It was great to mingle with other theorists of metamodernism and share ideas! Here’s a link to a transcript version of the talk.
