   schema:description ""This book explores the possibility of drawing upon a punk ethos to inspire sociology and to cultivate a vibrant future for the discipline. Aiming to fire the sociological imaginations of sociologists at any stage of their careers, from new students to established professors, it uses punk to think creatively about what sociology is and how it might be conducted. Following a succinct outline of the disciplinary and social challenges that sociology faces today, the book then applies the punk ethos to sociological knowledge, communication and terrain. The concept of punk sociology is developed through a series of riffs, each of which directly applies key features of the punk ethos to sociology. "Punk Sociology" encourages sociologists to avoid the temptation to play it safe. Instead it calls for us to be bold, open, inventive, and to produce raw, stripped back and fearless work that adheres to a do-it-yourself ethic"--Publisher description."@en ;
