“All supposedly educated people have ceased to believe that the dead can become visible as spirits, and have made any such appearances dependent on improbably and remote conditions.” -Freud, The Uncanny #GhostlyMatters
What are the implications of the scholarly dismissal of the ghostly- on scholarship, on spirits, and on haunted academics and academies? #GhostlyMatters #AcademicAbleism
How do we- the haunting and haunted, the scholar and subject- reckon with ghosts that have been removed or ignored? #GhostlyMatters #AcademicAbleism
This is a story about Sabrina Spielrein. This is a story about Avery Gordon. This is a story about me. This is a story of women haunted, hidden, disappeared, and rewritten. #GhostlyMatters
Dr. Sabrina Spielrein studied psychiatry under Freud and Jung. She was haunted by herself, her voices, her fantasies and anxieties, her future. She had schizophrenia. #GhostlyMatters
She was disappeared from the Third Psychoanalytic Congress, absent from the photograph. She reappeared in her words in her diary. She reappeared and still she haunts. #GhostlyMatters
Avery Gordon was on her way to an official conference with an abstract and a promise. She was haunted by the delineation of fact and fiction, reality and imagination, haunted by the idea of what is haunted. #GhostlyMatters
Gordon was haunted and wrote Ghostly Matters, wherein she continues to haunt us as we read and unravel and reckon with ghosts. #GhostlyMatters
I am reading and haunted, trying to make sense of myself as a ghostly scholar, haunting and haunted by academia. Autistic scholars are rendered ghostly through (a)rhetoric, through the ableism and NTism that allow academia to exist. #GhostlyMatters #AutisticsInAcademia
cw: suicide
Autistic students are disappeared from academia through burnout and exhaustion, expectations and eccentricities, precarity, peculiarity, through arhetoricity, through suicide. #GhostlyMatters #AcademicAbleism #AutisticsInAcademia
I’m still here and I’m struggling. I’m rendered more ghostly, more haunted, and more desperate every day. But I’m still here. My work, my words, and my tweets will haunt academia, no matter what comes next. #GhostlyMatters #AcademicAbleism #AutisticsInAcademia
