Event:Nostalgia Today
Venue:Freud Museum 20 Maresfield Gardens NW3 5SX
Duration:9:30 am - 5:00 pm
Extra Info:This conference considers the many meanings of nostalgia and its significance in individual psychology and social life.
As a feeling, a medical category or a political ideology, nostalgia has undergone profound changes in its associations and cultural uses.

Nostalgia exists in relation to memory, identity, time and home. We can see its effects in processes of ageing and dementia, in work with refugees, and in understanding experiences of exile and trauma. In recent years psychologists have begun to see nostalgia in a more positive light as something that we have all experienced, resonating with an imagined past and future.

Nostalgia is also depicted in literature, art and culture. In its recent political appropriations it becomes a condition shaping individual and collective behaviour.
