MPod: Alternative Ulster: Anti-sectarian Punk in Northern Ireland
The MPod podcast series is produced by students and staff at the Mitchell Institute for Global Peace, Security and Justice, exploring topics related to peace, conflict and student well-being.
From rebel songs to orange marches, music has long been integral to the sectarian conflict in Northern Ireland.
However, since the mid-1970s, punk has rejected the loyalist-nationalist divide, advocating instead a radical agenda of anti-sectarianism. This month, MPod speaks with Dr. Jim Donaghey and Kira Topalian to explore the meanings and messages of punk in Northern Ireland.
