    About the Author

    Dick Hebdige

    Richard Dick Hebdige born 1951 is an expatriate British media theorist and sociologist most commonly associated with the study of subcultures, and subcultural resistance against the mainstream of society.Hebdige received his M.A from the Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies in Birmingham, United Kingdom He is best known for his influential book Subculture The Meaning of Style, originally published in 1979 He has been teaching in art schools since the mid 1970s He served as the Dean of Critical Studies and the Director of the experimental writing program at the California Institute of the Arts before going to the University of California, Santa Barbara, where he is currently a professor of film and media studies and art.Hebdige s Subculture The Meaning of Style builds on earlier work at Birmingham on youth subcultures While much of this research was concerned with the relation between subcultures and social class in postwar Britain, Hebdige saw youth cultures in terms of a dialogue between Black and white youth He argues that punk emerged as a mainly white style when Black youth became separatist in the 1970s in response to discrimination in British society Whereas previous research described a homology between the different aspects of a subcultural style dress, hairstyle, music, drugs , Hebdige argues that punk in London in 1976 77 borrowed from all previous subcultures and its only homology was chaos In making this argument he was drawing on the early work of Julia Kristeva who also found such subversion of meaning in French poets such as Mallarm and Lautr amont.Hebdidge also wrote Cut n Mix Culture, Identity and Caribbean Music 1987 on Caribbean music and identity, and Hiding in the Light On Images and Things 1988 a book of essays that includes some further thoughts about punk.In 2008 he contributed a chapter to Sound Unbound Sampling Digital Music and Culture edited by Paul D Miller a.k.a DJ Spooky.

      M favorite academic essay of all time is in this fine collection: "Object as Image: the Italian Scooter Cycle."

      This was assigned to me in a sociology class and it was one of my earliest experience with pop culture as something to be seriously studied and discussed. "Thank god," I thought "That there are people out there considering the greater implications of the shape of band aids. Thank god!"
