Nostalgic Design presents a rhetorical analysis of twenty-first century nostalgia and a method for designers to create more inclusive technologies. Nostalgia is a form of resistant commemoration that can tell designers what users value about past designs, why they might feel excluded from the present, and what they wish to recover in the future. By examining the nostalgic hacks of several contemporary technical cultures, from female software programmers who knit on the job to anti-vaccination parents, Kurlinkus argues that innovation without tradition will always lead to technical alienation, whereas carefully examining and layering conflicting nostalgic traditions can lead to technological revolution.
Some readers may argue that it's not their femininity that's odd but rather any sign of personal nostalgia at work. But male nostalgia floods ... Because they think of it as arts and crafts, doing cross-stitch, purposeless, unimportant.

For many people, knitting, sewing, and needlepoint are comfortable and easy ways to relax. Much like adult coloring, the repetitive nature of each activity aids in mindfulness. Now, all the fun of adult coloring and the classic designs from knitting come together in the adult coloring book Remember When: Cross-Stitch Samplers. Each of the easy-to-color designs comes prepared and ready, so all you need to do is grab your pencils and fill them with your favorite shades. Featured in this adult coloring book are fifty black-and-white illustrations of adorable knit cross-stitching for you to color as you please. There’s no need to buy more yarn when you tire of using the same color combinations. This tasteful and artsy book includes stitching of classic sayings such as “Home Sweet Home” and “Good friends are like diamonds, precious and rare.” Each is accompanied by beautiful illustrations that mimic the classic knit style and exemplify some facet of the phrases. For example, in “An apple a day, keeps the doctor away,” the word “apple” is replaced by an apple design and the whole phrase is surrounded by lush ornamentation.

This volume explores the nature of nostalgia as an important emotion in contemporary society and social theory. Situated between the ‘sociology of emotions’ and ‘nostalgia studies’, it considers the reasons for which nostalgia appears to be becoming an increasingly significant and debated emotion in late-modern culture. With chapters offering studies of nostalgia at micro-, meso- and macro-levels of society, it offers insights into the rise to prominence of nostalgia and the attendant consequences. Thematically organised and examining the role of nostalgia on an individual level – in the lives of concrete individuals – as well as analysing its function on a more historical social level as a collective and culturally shared emotion, Nostalgia Now brings together the latest empirical and theoretical work on an important contemporary emotion and proposes new agendas for research. As such, it will appeal to scholars of sociology, social theory, psychology and cultural studies with interests in the emotions.

This book looks at the role nostalgia plays in the radical imagination to offer a new guide to the history and politics of the left. In "Left in the Past", Bonnett re-assesses the place of nostalgia within radical politics and, in doing so, provides a new introduction to the history and politics of the left. Bonnett argues that nostalgia has been a chronic, but repressed, aspect of the socialist imagination. "Left in the Past" is premised on the idea that, in our 'post-socialist era', the relationship between radicalism and a sense of loss, and the ambivalent position of socialism in and against modernity, can be viewed with greater clarity. In Section One of the book, Bonnett shows the centrality and repression of nostalgia in both 19th-century radicalism and anti-colonial radicalism. In Section Two, he explores the consequences of this inheritance by way of 20th century and contemporary studies of revolutionary intellectuals and intellectual culture. Bonnett's unique approach in how to understand the left in an age of post-socialism will make book a needed resource for anyone interested in the history and politics of the left and radicalism.
