Investigative-Mediational Sequential Research Design
uses a specific platform for building, developing, ad conceptualizing haunt phenomena at particular sites. This format provides a systematic approach for organizing data, and its availability and use in comparative
analysis, by making it more personable, perceptual, accessible, controlled, manageable, and meaningful to the individual ghost
researcher or ghost organization.
design organizes data in a symmetrical way that connects the past to the present, and in the process, illustrates the dynamics
of a haunting and improves understanding by promoting new avenues of discovery. The
ultimate goal is the development of a haunting/paradigm.
incorporates both an emic (observed phenomena) and etic (community of observers) viewpoints. It
is designed to be a sequence of targeted mutual exchanges and equality of interaction from multiple (and differing) perspectives
of circulating references incorporating unique combinations that help to create a template of systemization and standardization
in field methodology and technique.
of ethnoarchaeoghostological practice remains a continuous and ongoing event. WE
continue to transform and recall the haunted material past through new acts of engagement and delegation, new skills, and
new knowledge that is both emically and etically oriented. As a result, the continuing
research and investigative process is part of an ongoing life cycle at haunted locations. Finally,
by presenting data in a controlled sequential context, this research design helps other researchers to find and explore connections
that may have previously been hidden or obscured.
Research Design consists of five sequential in an ongoing intrusive investigation. These
Mimesis: This compares the natural sensory manifestation of the contemporary
environment and the apparitional and haunting residual manifestations. The goal
is to determine the haunt drama and differentiate it from the natural/contemporary causation. Then,
2) Application of the Theoretical Ethnoarchaeoghostology (A.T.E) to behavioral D.A.T.A. (dynamic aspects of
targeted apparitions): This is the use of archeological survey and excavation
field procedures to map haunt patterns and excavate haunt phases in order to define a haunt matrix. It also involves ethnographic research methods to isolate and define the S.P.I.R.I.T. cultures at haunted
M.R.I. (Memory Recall Investigations): This defect the composition of haunt drama
at a location through the use of dramaturgical techniques. The focus is to identify
sensory manifestation alterations the produce discontinuities with the contemporary environment; Then
4) H.E.A.R.T. (Haunt Ethno-Archaeological Resonance Team) and S.O.U.L.
(Searching out for (still) Unfinished Lives) Performance-based field work: This
involves the development of a ghost script and sequential ally-framed activities targeting specific individuals. The goal is to provide the interactive apparition an alternative to their haunting (memory of experiences,
event, and activities) behavior. Then,
Mediation in the presentation of haunt phenomena: This involves the media application
in the presentation of field data and investigative reports of ghosts and haunt phenomena at specific location. The goal is to provide guidelines for scientifically-oriented media presentation that both appeals, and
is understandable to, amateur and professionals alike.
