 'We Don't Want Life to Look Difficult, Do We?': Representations of the Fifties and Self-Reflexive Nostalgia in Mad Men 

Submitted by Adam Pekar on Mon, 10/09/2017 - 11:59

This article investigates how the TV series Mad Men portrays the fifties through the lens of self-reflexive nostalgia. Focusing on a close reading of its first season, I look at how Mad Men’s self-awareness towards the function of images and advertising in the creation of the fifties as a cultural construct is often complicated by its nostalgic and conservative politics.
