Avery Gordon in Ghostly Matters claims, 'The way of the ghost is haunting, and haunting is a particular way of knowing what has happened or is happening. Being haunted draws us affectively, sometimes against our will and always a bit magically, into the structure of feeling we come to experience, not as cold knowledge, but as a transformative recognition.'

Please read the full description following the link below and take part in assembling a collective tale of the power of imagination to shape history!

Dr Marie-Luise Kohlke / Swansea University

We invite contributions on Neo-Victorian Biofiction for a themed volume in Rodopi's Neo-Victorian Series to be published in 2016. This edited collection will examine the manifold narrative ethics and strategies employed by writers, dramatists, poets, filmmakers, graphic novelists and other artists to re-imagine the lives of nineteenth-century historical subjects. From celebrities, including iconic public figures and notorious criminals, to obscure individuals virtually erased from historical records, as in the case of slaves, servants, industrial and sex workers, the personal triumphs and traumas of real-life people of the period continue to exert an evident fascination for the present.
