This panel will examine the appearance of "apparitional lesbians" in various works of fiction in order to question whether the apparitional, the unseen, and the invisible can be rendered visible, and how such a new visibility readjusts our understanding of those works. The panel will also consider papers on newer lesbian texts that employ the ghostly or empower it explicitly. Please send abstracts of 250-500 words.
