NYU offers a course on the birth of punk rock in New York and London in the late 1970s that is now available to non-NYU students.
Writer and former post-punk musician Vivian Goldman has taught the class since 2006 as part of the university’s degree in entrepreneurism in the music industry.
“I teach a lot about New York punk,” said Goldman. “It’s fun teaching right there where it happened. New York has a huge role.”
The class will now be offered over the summer and will be available to non-NYU students for the first time.
