The Duffer Brothers’ award-winning¬†Stranger Things¬†exploded onto the pop culture scene in 2016. The Netflix original series revels in a nostalgic view of 1980s America while darkly portraying the cynical aspects of the period.

This collection of 23 new essays explores how the show reduces, reuses and recycles ’80s pop culture–from the films of Spielberg, Carpenter and Hughes to punk and synthwave music to¬†Dungeons & Dragons–and how it shapes our understanding of the decade through distorted memory.
