Eddie Watson

PhD Student in History

The University of Texas at Austin

I am a graduate student at the University of Texas at Austin with a B.A (first-class honors) in History and an M.A. in Modern History from the University of Sheffield. My main research is focused on the relationship between working-class masculinities and punk in Britain between 1976 and the early 1990s. I’m particularly interested in how working-class people navigated a period of economic turmoil through consumption, popular music, do-it-yourself (DIY) production, and urban spaces.
