This paper will suggest that Stranger Things does not merely indulge in nostalgic exploration of childhood past, but, rather, it employs the spaces of childhood as an essential and strategic part of its landscape. Using landscape theories drawn from both cultural geography and literary studies, Cyr suggests a reading of Stranger Things through its use of childhood spaces, which offer both access to the terrifying world of the Upside Down and clues to ensure the characters’ survival.
