That’s What She Said
On the Future of Nostalgia
From: On Nostalgia
In this chapter the author points out that we don’t know what we’ve got until it’s gone and we don’t even know when it will go. The question "Why is it that nostalgia should heve permeated our culture so thoroughly?" is also examined in social media as throwbacks are mined for nostalgia.
