Volume 3: “Hauntings and Traces”

The journal's cover, featuring an off-white building with diaphanous medium blue streaks laid on top of it, on a dappled gray ground.

This issue of Refract investigates the power dynamics of (in)visibility through “haunting” and the “trace.”  A form of way-making, the trace offers itself as an object, subject, and action, a remnant and a becoming. Haunting occupies a discomforting space between something/somebody and nothing/nobody – not simply a vestige of previous realities but an active force that unsettles life-and-death worlds.
