Throughout literature, art and culture, haunting is tapped to figure a number of topics and seems to recur in works by or referring to Jews. This conference aims to explore the many renditions of haunting which appear in the Jewish imaginary and in the imagination of Jews. What do these specters, haunted spaces and ghostly objects symbolize? What do they indicate about Jewish concepts of time and history? How might haunting act as a critical lens for understanding the Jewish experience?
