Theatre and Ghosts brings theatre and performance history into dialogue with the flourishing field of spectrality studies. The contributors include internationally-renowned theatre scholars who have shaped the study of cultural memory. Essays shed new light on spectral economies, geo-politics, and histories of acting; they span from adaptations of the Gothic to the operations and technologies of the modern and new supernatural, addressing topics such as ghost-seeing, horror shows, mediums, revenants, haunted sites, spiritual worlds, and acting as an incarnation of the dead.
