Stojanovic Mind The Ghost Sonja Stojanovic 1

A contribution to current conversations in memory studies and spectrality studies, « Mind the Ghost » is an experiment in reading ghosts otherwise. It explores, through contemporary fiction in French, sites of textual haunting that take the form of names, lists, objects, photographs, and stains. Considering the memories and legacies of violence that have marked the greater part of the twentieth-century, this book traces absences, disappearances and reappearances, textual omissions and untimely irruptions to posit literature’s power to both remember and communicate beyond the bounds of chronological time.
