Hauntology Monograph - Katy Shaw [Bloomsbury 2013]

Hauntology Monograph - Katy Shaw [Bloomsbury 2013] | Hauntology | Scoop.it

'Hauntology: A Critical Introduction provides an exciting, accessible and interdisciplinary introduction to hauntology, an approach in cultural studies that has recently experienced a huge surge in popular attention. Analysing Derrida’s original writings on hauntology as well as discussing criticisms and uses through the analysis of a range of contemporary cultural forms, this text is the first secondary resource concerning hauntology available to the reading public the world over. The book argues that hauntology offers a fascinating and powerful means of reading contemporary culture. Investigating an innate paradox of being and non-being, hauntology provides a way of understanding the spectral nature of the past and it’s informing presence in today’s world. Exploring the history and uses of hauntology to date, the study analyses key themes (such as ghosts / supernatural / haunting of the past) through a carefully selected range of cultural examples from literature, film, music and architecture. Beginning with an overview of Derrida’s work and critical debates surrounding hauntology, the book goes on to apply hauntology as a critical approach to contemporary culture. Each chapter examines a different way of using hauntology and illustrates its arguments with close reading of apposite texts. As an interdisciplinary work, the book explores a variety of cultural examples to demonstrate how the critical understandings established and debated by the introductory chapter can be put to use by critical readers in their own fields of study. The text will conclude with a consideration of hauntology as a critical approach for the new millennium.'

Digital Memory and the Archive - Wolfgang Ernst (University of Minnesota Press) | Hauntology | Scoop.it

'Digital Memory and the Archive, the first English-language collection of the German media theorist’s work, brings together essays that present Wolfgang Ernst’s controversial materialist approach to media theory and history. His insights are central to the emerging field of media archaeology, which uncovers the role of specific technologies and mechanisms, rather than content, in shaping contemporary culture and society.'
