Millennial Ghosts: Factual Representations of the Supernatural
Religious Studies Research Seminar
Dr Cecilia Sayad (University of Kent)

Abstract: Twenty first century cultural production increasingly presents supernatural themes as factual: from faux found-footage horror films to ghost hunting reality shows and websites compiling documentary footage of supposedly paranormal phenomena. This talk proposes that the seeming factual presentation of the supernatural requires that we redefine the ways in which the horror genre addresses real events and, by extension, our relationship with images.
