Ellen Bernhard

Ellen Bernhard is an assistant professor of digital communication at Georgian Court University in Lakewood, New Jersey. Her research focuses on contemporary punk rock scenes and their relationships with popular culture, social media and technology. Recent research addresses the connection between fans’ early introductions to punk rock via commercial means (Punk-O-Rama and Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater soundtracks) and contextualizes these introductions into an understanding of a current punk rock identity. She is also interested in the rhetoric of punk rock and the genre’s use of humour to critique and satirize. Her most recent article, ‘Bad Religion and the burlesque: Framing extremist rhetoric in “The Kids are Alt-Right”’ was published in Rock Music Studies in 2022. Her book, Contemporary Punk Rock Communities: Scenes of Inclusion and Dedication was published by Lexington Books in 2019.
