Dissertation:

Ghosts and the Imagined Past

My dissertation looks at the overlap between folklore--specifically ghost-lore--and the imagined past. What I want to know is how ordinary persons who tell ghost stories end up doing the work of imagining the past, intentionally or not, through the act of telling.
