Nostalgia and world literature

I participated today in the yearly autumn seminar at Tampere University; the seminar is structured this year around the notion of nostalgia.

The seminar includes a range of speakers on the subject of nostalgia in literature, including Riikka Rossi, Maria Matinmikko, and Mikko Mäntyniemi – full program can be found here.

I presented an (admittedly tentative) talk about nostalgia and world literature.

Many thanks to Nazry Bahrawi, Liz Ho, Chen Bar-Itzhak, Francesco Marilungo, Cengiz Buket, Tim Hannigan, Annie Webster, and others, who have drawn my attention over the past years to the many aspects of nostalgia in literature beyond Europe.
