Ghostly matters ...

"Ghostly matters are part of social life. If we want to study social life well, and if in addition we to want to contribute, in however small a measure, to changing it, we must learn how to identify hauntings and reckon with ghosts, must learn how to make contact with what is without doubt often painful, difficult, and unsettling. ... in order to do this, we will have to change the way we have been doing things" (Avery Gordon, Ghostly Matters, 1997).
