Another perspective on nostalgia.

In a sense I’m hoping nostalgia doesn’t become some new fascination with me. The last thing I need is ANOTHER “something” to rattle around in my mind. That said…

Here’s Svetlana Boym on nostalgia! Boym is a professor of Slavic and Comparative literatures at Harvard, which pretty much makes her the most interesting person to me this weekend. I personally love the whole idea of slow thinking, even though it kind of goes against my thesis on nostalgia from last week. Oh well. Enjoy and discuss!
