CANTERBURY CHRIST CHURCH UNIVERSITY
PARC has collaborated with CCU on Nostalgias a peer-reviewed academic conference held at the Winter Gardens, Margate in November, 2013.
This peer-reviewed two day conference examined, analysed and interpreted the complexities of nostalgia and nostalgic sensibilities within art, media and material culture.
Nostalgia is often viewed as a form of yearning for another place or time; it has been identified as a way of managing loss, a marketing device and a tool of propaganda, by making reference to the past as a means to shape the future. Recently, the cultural function of nostalgia has been a subject of critical debate. In response, the conference considered nostalgias' different functions across a range of art and media based practices. Areas of exploration included: photography, film, television, music, archives, consumer culture, psychology and social media.
