This month we are talking about the book ‘Italian Goth Subculture: Kindred Creatures and other Dark Enactments’. We’ll be exploring the ways Italian Darks brought forth their subculture in the 80’s through activism, social interaction, consumption practices (literature, art, and music) and the negotiation of subcultural canon. We’ll also be discussing the similarities and differences of these enactments to today’s goth subculture and examining the academic frameworks used to understand the stories shared by 24 Italian darks.

You can purchase the book for yourself here! We highly recommend it.
