So I just got my mass & pop culture paper back and made the mistake of conflating a discussion about youth subcultures in post-war britian with punk - and my paper was knocked down a grade because of it. I made the mistake of lumping a discussion of Teddy Boys and skinheads together under one title and made it in front of a professor whose main area of specification is punk.
yep. stupid. stupid. I just know not much about the era and frankly didn't have dates associated with this stuff and honestly thought the discussion WAS about punk even though it never says it.
