'Hauntology 20 Years On is a one-day symposium organised to mark 20 years since the publication of Jacques Derrida's Spectres of Marx. Hauntology defies easy description but embodies the idea of the 'past inside the present' and the border between nostalgia and the enigmatic remoteness of real or constructed pasts. It’s closely connected with certain forms of cinema. The symposium will be accompanied by screenings of hauntological films. The keynote speaker will be cultural theorist Mark Fisher, editor of Capitalist Realism, the K-Punk blog and author of Ghosts of My Life, a forthcoming book on hauntology. Papers will explore Cinematic Hauntology, Sonic Hauntology, Hauntology Online Being and Non-being, Politics, Ideology and Hauntology and The Philosophy of Hauntology.'
