Spectre-scopics: Gazing at Ghosts in Short Stories by Women, 1950-Present

My thesis focuses on twentieth and twenty-first-century ghost stories by women, with a particular emphasis on the construction of gendered spectrality through matrices of looking and spectatorship. It examines a series of short stories published between 1950 and the present day, from writers such as Angela Carter and Joyce Carol Oates, and less well-known ones such as Lisa Tuttle and Phyllis Eisenstein, and questions how these writers develop and reconfigure both the manifestations of spectral agency and the operations of the ghost-directed gaze.
