Abstract: The study of ghost stories tells the stories of not just ghosts and our relationship(s) with them, but also the stories of our histories, memories, and the shifting conceptions of symbolic norms in our everyday. These shifts are encapsulated by the existence of ethnic and social ghosts that also reflect our ideas of the self and other. Embodied within ghostly bodies, sites, and objects, we experience these ghost stories through our senses and with time, begin to carve and categorize them as ?Singapore ghost stories? ? a genre embodying stories of and about the Singapore society as experienced and told by the people.
