"Are Ghosts Unnatural" ISSN 2014 Panel

updated: 
Thursday, October 3, 2013 - 10:39am
2014 ISSN Conference (March 27-30, 2014 in Cambridge, MA)

Ghosts occupy a marginal position in unnatural narrative; instead of being considered in their strangeness, they are frequently naturalized through questions of genre. Violations of time, space, or causality have been privileged over the supernatural and paranormal in foundational texts of unnatural narratology. For instance, Brian Richardson distinguishes between truly unnatural "anti-mimetic" texts and more "traditional" "non-mimetic" texts, which still rely on realist conventions. This panel seeks to counteract that division, bringing studies of spectrality and unnatural narrative together to demonstrate the radical denaturalizing potential of ghosts in narrative.
