Spectral Turn : Jewish Ghosts in the Polish Post-holocaust Imaginaire (Paperback) (Zuzanna Dziuban) - image 1 of 1

About this item

Over the last decades, studies on cultural memory have taken a `spectral turn'. They have explored the potential of haunting metaphors for addressing past instances of violence that affect present cultural realities. Zuzanna Dziuban contributes to understandings of the figure of the ghost by inquiring into its culturally and historically located modality: the emergence of Jewish ghosts in contemporary Polish popular culture, literature, and critical art. Locating this new interest in Jewish ghosts on the map of other Polish (and Jewish) ghostologies, this study seeks to explore the cultural and political functions of the post-Holocaust haunted imaginaire.
