Far West PCA - Ghosts and Memory - Deadline: 2019-12-12
« on: November 10, 2019, 11:50:14 AM »
Ghosts and Memory
Far West Popular Culture Association

Deadline: December 12, 2019
Contact: swafford@fsmail.bradley.edu

I am seeking 20 minute paper proposals for a panel that considers the various literary uses and conceptions of ghosts as a mode of memory, projection, history, trauma, and reconciliation/redemption. Part of the foundational premise of the ghost story is a disturbance in the present that comes from the past; an unsettling interaction between mind and matter, memory and perception, the living and the dead. All paper proposals that consider these aspects of ghost stories (as literature/writing) are welcome.

The Far West Popular Culture Association will be held on February 22-24, 2020 in Las Vegas, Nevada, at the Palace Station Hotel/Casino.

Please send a 250 word abstract and a brief bio to: Swafford@fsmail.bradley.edu
