After the Second World War, psychological concepts of mind over matter provided a new way to explain the poltergeist – a rare and strange phenomenon in which objects moved on their own. What is the historical significance of this?
Christopher Laursen currently a PhD candidate in the Department of History at the University of British Columbia is seeking accounts for his dissertation which examines a historical shift in how people experienced the poltergeist phenomenon in the second half of the twentieth century in Britain, the U.S., and Canada….
DID YOU EXPERIENCE OBJECTS THAT REPEATEDLY MOVED ON THEIR OWN WITH NO APPARENT EXPLANATION?
If so, historian Christopher Laursen would like to hear from you. This research focuses on these types of experiences that occurred between 1945 and 1990. The movement of objects on their own should have taken place repeated over a period of time, for example, a few days, weeks, or months, but then have stopped moving on their own at some point. Please send an e-mail or letter describing in detail what happened to you, noting where and when it happened as well. Your experience may add to the historical knowledge of this phenomenon. Your experiences will only be included in this research upon the completion of a consent form and questionnaire that you can complete by e-mail or regular mail. If you wish, you may remain anonymous in the research. Further information can be found HERE
