Historical Images in Postmodern Culture

Abstract. The article discusses a question of representation of the past in the postmodern culture, pastiche having become its most commonly used form. Being mimicry of past styles, pastiche has no historical references. Basing herself on Jameson’s theory of postmodernity, the author analyzes some modern cultural texts and practices, demonstrating the loss of a sense of history in postmodern culture going along with popularity of historical plots in popular culture.

Key words. Culture, postmodernism, history, pastiche, simulacrum, popular culture, nostalgia, deconstruction, citation
