Genre/Nostalgia 2021

In January 2021 we held an online film and television conference.

We welcomed a range of thought-provoking and inspiring speakers who shared their research on the connections between nostalgia and genre in film and television.

We are now making some of the video essays we received during the conference accessible to all. So if you were unable to attend, or if you'd like to watch again please click on the links in the table.
