This work reflects upon a facet of memory that has a special resonance for those of us entangled by the long histories of colonialism and decolonisation – nostalgia. Nostalgia is a cultural phenomenon that in an uncanny way connects people across national and historical as well as personal boundaries, yet remains to be fully understood or explained.
