Nostalgia is an emotion which connects the self with the past, and plays a part in our lives in more profound ways than simply being stuck in the past. In this workshop, we will explore what nostalgia is, and how it is portrayed in, as well as how it shapes, literary fiction. Professor Constantine Sedikides of the University of Southampton will join us to give a lecture on the psychology of nostalgia. In addition, we will discuss various aspects of nostalgia in literary works.
