Susan Owens will discuss ghosts and her book ‘Ghosts a Cultural History’ in this zoom lecture

The idea that the dead can return to haunt the living is deeply rooted in our imaginations, and for centuries ghosts have appeared in plays and poems, novels and stories, ballad-sheets and caricatures, paintings and photographs.

Susan Owens, author of The Ghost: A Cultural History, will describe the ways in which Britain’s artists and writers have presented ghosts, looking at how their appearance and behaviour has changed over time. What do their shifting roles reveal about them – and us?

These are extraordinary times and the plague has hit some harder than others, tickets are by donation – if you possibly can £10 is much appreciated, but £2 is also much appreciated. Thank you for your support.
