Nostalgiacising: a Performative Theory of Nostalgic Consumption

We establish a performative theory of nostalgic consumption, termed nostalgiacising, which we define as reflective (future-oriented) consumer nostalgia that is not innate or emotional, but rather performatively enacted. Specifically, we unpack five performative dimensions of reflective consumer nostalgia (language, space, social systems, community, and style).
