A recent development within psychoanalysis has been the focus on legacies of trauma and how they are transmitted across generations.  Recent work on ghosts and multi-generational transmissions (Faimberg, 2005; Harris, Kalb, Klebanoff, 2016; Kalb, 2015; Salberg, 2015; Salberg & Grand, 2017) has explored how ghosts – relationally internalized and also historical, cultural, political – enter psychoanalytic dyads unbidden.  Ghostly hauntings are hardly limited to the psychoanalytic encounter and have been represented in particular in the Jewish imaginary.  While ghosts are not specifically part of Jewish theology, the imperative to remember, Zakar, is pre-eminent and threads through text: for example, G_d remembered Noah (Genesis 8:1), you shall remember My covenant (Genesis 9:15), that G_d remembered Abraham (Genesis 19:29) all reflect this.  There is a pull to the past and, as this panel will suggest, time becomes fluid and trans-generational transmissions inform the biblical stories that continue to haunt us today.  This panel will utilize psychoanalytic trans-generational theories as a lens to then better understand and trace trans-generational hauntings in agghadic and midrashic stories.
