>Memory  and Nostalgia
>
>The dialectic between &lsquo;Memory&rsquo; and
>&lsquo;Nostalgia&rsquo; has always been a  significant issue for various
>disciplines like history, sociology, psychology,  cultural studies, gender
>studies, media studies, literature, etc. Especially  nostalgia, as Sean
>Scanlan states, has &ldquo;an uncanny ability to exceed any  constraining
>definition&rdquo; (1). As a Greek term, comprising the two parts
>&ldquo;nostos&rdquo;  (to return home) and &ldquo;algos&rdquo; (pain),
>nostalgia, Linda Hutcheon explains, was  coined in 1688 by a Swiss medical
>student &ldquo;as a sophisticated &hellip; way to talk  about a literally
>lethal kind of severe homesickness&rdquo; (1). In Nicholas Dames&rsquo;
>terms, nostalgia is a form of &ldquo;retrospect that remembers only what
>is pleasant  and only what the self can employ in the present; &hellip;
>[it is] an absence; what it  lacks is what&hellip; has come to be regarded
>as memory in its purest form&rdquo; (4).  Nostalgia, then, is a
>&ldquo;memory that is always only the necessary prehistory of  the present
>[which] consists of the stories about one&rsquo;s past that explain and
>consolidate memory rather than dispersing it into a series of vivid,
>relinquished moments and &hellip; [which] can only survive by eradicating
>the &lsquo;pure  memory&rsquo;&rdquo; (Dames 4).
>
>Nostalgia has  always been a useful compensatory tool to
>construct an alternative historical  reality created by the images of the
>golden past, especially when there is  discontent with the present
>socio-economic situation in any culture. Just like  governing bodies,
>modern global corporations also use nostalgia to advertise  their
>commodities by relating either their products or companies to a more
>desirable time in the past. By implanting modified images in the
>prospective  clients&rsquo; minds, such advertising strategies rewrite
>history through forged  memories about the good old days when prices were
>more reasonable, goods more  durable, and services were more
>satisfactory.
>As Dylan  Trigg, the author of The Aesthetics of
>Decay: Nothingness, Nostalgia, and the Absence of Reason (2006)
>claims,  &ldquo;nostalgia demands &hellip; the fixation of the past
>&hellip; Thus, both static images &ndash;  memories &ndash; and lived
>experience &ndash; place &ndash; serve as homogenous platforms for the
>nostalgic conscious to impose and identify itself&rdquo; (1). Both memory
>and  nostalgia, then, have always had some spatial and territorial
>connotations,  whether real or ideal, either in some negative or positive
>sense. 
>This  symposium, then, aims to explore how memory and nostalgia
>collaborate to  construct a meaningful space in a given culture, both
>individually and  collectively, either through &ldquo;the willing
>suspension of disbelief&rdquo; or as a state  apparatus, with reference to
>such issues as globalism, consumerism,  nation-states, neo-conservatism,
>etc. During the symposium we hopeİ such
>questions as Linda Hutcheon raises about  the relationship between
>postmodernism and nostalgia will also be discussed:  &ldquo;Was [the]
>postmodern recalling of the past an example of a conservative &ndash; and
>therefore nostalgic &ndash; escape to an idealized, simpler era of
>&lsquo;real&rsquo;&rdquo; (1). Or, if  &ldquo;nostalgia is given surplus
>meaning and value at certain moments &ndash; millennial  moments, like our
>own,&rdquo; has nostalgia become an &ldquo;obsession of both mass culture
>and high art&rdquo; or is it only &ldquo;the media&rsquo;s
>obsession&rdquo;? (Hutcheon 1).
