Narratives of Dominican Haunting: Reading Across Rumor and the Signs of History attempts to read and re-read alongside theories of historicity and methods of engaging with Dominican hauntings, of engaging with history¿s ¿return¿. Focusing on the work of three novels, and two Dominican authors, my attention towards each narrative requires an engagement with a long history of the island of Hispaniola, with borders as well as regionalisms, and constructions of time through rumor and geographical differences. The chapters remain focused on reading for signs through which Dominican colonial and national history (which cross over to Haiti, and even New York City, at times) come to bear.
