Mediations of Nostalgia: Aesthetics, Intermediality, Ecology
This study is the first of its kind, investigating the aesthetic and intermedial potential of nostalgia. Nostalgia studies is a fast growing interdisciplinary research field, but it has predominantly focused on the thematic, political, historical and sociological aspects of nostalgia. This study fills a gap in creating an increased awareness of nostalgia’s aesthetic and intermedial aspects, and how it is entangled with current issues as well as how it is mediated and represented. The monograph also investigates nostalgia’s potential in ecocritical discourses.
