Do you want to improve your language skills by watching and discussing TV series?
Everyone is welcome to join us for a screening and discussion of these popular and critically acclaimed TV shows! They reflect a larger trend in contemporary American culture: nostalgia. The selected series remind us of 1980s pop culture ('Stranger Things') and the politics of the Cold War ('The Americans'), they take us on a sentimental journey to the tumultuous times of the 1960s ('Mad Men') and into a futuristic Wild West ('Westworld'). How do these shows represent the ‘good old times’ of bygone eras? Why do they speak to us at the current moment? And, what are the politics of looking back to decades past?
Come out, get to know the shows, and explore these crucial questions with us!
