Abstract

In recent years, several youth subcultures have become the focus of concerns about ‘evil’ and ‘Satanism’. This paper considers two such groups: Pagans and Goths. It uses discourse analysis to explore how young Goths and Pagans construct their subcultures, how they feel others perceive them, and how they respond to these perceptions.
