Roberts Williams presents on 'Dis manibus: a taxonomy of ghosts and ghostly phenomena'. The name Dis Manibus is drawn from the Latin, abbreviated to “DM” on Roman tombstones, which dedicate the occupants to ‘The Spirits of the Underworld’. Dis Manibus emerged as a consequence of a series of seminars at the noted Mildred’s Lane Project in Pennsylvania. Here, over an intensive three-week period, a group of graduate students and artists referred to as Mildred’s Lane Fellows considered the different contexts and behaviours of ghosts and ghost-seeing from a range of popular cultural forms. Professor Robert Williams is an artist and academic based at the University of Cumbria. He has collaborated closely with artists Mark Dion and Bryan McGovern Wilson; conceptual writers Dr. Simon Morris and Nick Thurston; archaeologists Dr. Aaron Watson and Dr. David Barrowclough; German cultural sociologist Dr. Hilmar Schäfer, and with his son, Jack Aylward-Williams.
