Four Tuesdays

“Hauntings” is a metaphor for the fact that we all live in historically generated “stories,” some conscious, some not.

These stories have the power to replicate our past and build on it, or occasion the same old, same old dead ends. This course will explore the various ways in which the excavation of the past can free the present, and redefine our future.
