About the Author

Kathryn Pallister teaches communications studies, sociology, and film at Red Deer College.


Bringing together fascinating scholars examining the timely nature of Netflix and nostalgia, this collection is a must-read for anyone trying to understand this important and unique moment in our cultural history. Streamers and academics alike will find something to love about this collection as it ruminates on shows like Stranger Things and Black Mirror. -- Ryan Lizardi, SUNY Polytechnic Institute
Netflix Nostalgia focuses on nostalgic programming, branding and narratives and is therefore an important contribution to the current research on nostalgia within media and communication studies. The different chapters offer a fascinating insight into how Netflix makes nostalgia "work" - not only as a feeling to be triggered by narratives but also as a corporate business strategy. The volume will therefore be a valuable source for future critical work on "nostalgia industries." -- Katharina Niemeyer, Universite du Quebec a Montreal (Canada), editor of Media and Nostalgia
