But your kids are gonna love it: Nostalgic Extremism in Depictions of the 1950s

Popular cultural depictions of the 1950s often emphasise an imagined nostalgic aesthetic of excessive conformity and heterogeneity as the foil to a protagonist’s rebellion against the established order. Commonly, the setting is not explicitly stated as the 1950s, but the cultural touchstones provide a receptive allusion for the audience to place the experiences temporally and contextually. Edward Scissorhands (1990), Don’t Worry Darling (2022) and other iterations of the Stepford Wives storyline, and Pleasantville (1998) all invoke an invented 1950s atmosphere of heightened conformity with an understated element of extremism under threat of non-conformity.

NEMLA panel: Under Assault: Teaching African American Literature Today

updated: 
Saturday, September 30, 2023 - 4:17pm
Clark Barwick, Indiana University, Bloomington
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 15, 2023

African American literature has always been under assault and faced threat of erasure. Yet, we are experiencing a heightened moment of attack, when political activists are using legislative action to attempt to eradicate Blackness, intersecting identities, DEI initiatives, and the history of race in America from public education and consciousness. Therefore, this is an important time for us to proactively discuss how we teach African American writing and its expressive power to help us understand our pasts, presents, and futures.

We all have lists of things to do. We also have playlists, shopping lists and lists of pros and cons (not to mention lists of publications). Whether we make them on paper or with an app, lists are central to our lives. They help us make sense of the world around us, keep track of the order of things and sometimes create a whole new order altogether. Lists were just as central to the lives and experiences of medieval people. If anything, the practice of enumeration was even more common in the Middle Ages, when lists fulfilled functions which are now served by other tools sitting at the intersection of written and visual culture, such as maps and databases.
