The Myth of Nostalgia: Collecting and Memory

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Cesare Asaro (creator, Finding Frank and His Friend), Bob Foster (Animation Guild president), Grant Geissman  (author, Foul Play! The Art and Artists of the Notorious 1950s E.C. Comics!), R. C. Harvey (cartoonist, critic and comic historian, Meanwhile...A Biography of Milton Caniff), Peter Maresca (editor, Sunday Press Books), and Kirstie Shepherd (author, Gadabout Time Machine User's Manual) have been collecting, creating, and selling nostalgia for over 40 years. Join them for a panel discussion on how collecting allows us to revisit memories from the past-even a past that they might have been too young to have seen or may never have existed at all. They'll explore how nostalgia can be invented, whether it goes in and out of fashion, and what happens when the collector becomes the creator.
