"Haunted Halls" a Class of 1970 Discussion

This is a past event.

Please join your ’70 classmates on October 22 at 7:00 PM EDT as our own Dr. Elizabeth (Libby) Tucker Gould relates tales of ghostly sightings on US campuses, as detailed in her book Haunted Halls: Ghostlore of American College Campuses (2007). Libby will share with us many of these stories, describe her academic research in folklore and legends, and feed our frustrated travel desires with descriptions of the “legend trips” she has taken. As the Amazon introduction to Haunted Halls states, “Besides offering insight into students' initiation into campus life, college ghost stories make important statements about injustices suffered by Native Americans, African Americans, and others.”

A recognized expert in folklore and legends, Dr. Elizabeth (Libby) Tucker Gould is the Distinguished Service Professor of English at Binghamton University, where she specializes in children’s and adolescents’ folklore, folklore of the supernatural, and legends. Her other books include Campus Legends: A Handbook (2005), Children’s Folklore: A Handbook (2008), Haunted Southern Tier (2011), New York State Folklife Reader: Diverse Voices (co-edited with Ellen McHale) (2013), and Legend Trips: A Contemporary Legend Handbook (2018) (co-edited with Lynne S. McNeill). Libby is a Fellow of the American Folklore Society, has edited Children’s Folklore Review, and served as President of the International Society for Contemporary Legend Research and the Children’s Folklore Section of the American Folklore Society. For several years she has written a column on play for the International Journal of Play. She loves to travel and go on legend trips.
