  • Hybridization of disciplines as a multivariate approach
  • Deep structural links:  Past cultures/ethnic traditions to contemporary cultural practices
  • Haunt Script Development
  • Performance-based investigations
  • Theatre and Ethnoarchaeoghostology
  • Fields of Influence and Haunt Strata depositional processes
  • Social programming, “blogging”, and wiki-wiki development
  • Photography and Ethnoarchaeoghostology
  • Peripatetic Video Surveys
  • “Noiseuses” Audio Surveys
  • Moral Delegation and Mediation
  • Evidential “Trustworthiness”
  • Development of a ghost and Haunt Behavior Paradigm
  • Field Metrology Studies at Haunted Locations
  • Cultural Bricolage Transformation and their Implications to Ghost Research
  • “Think Map” Visualization, Haunt Matrixing and Networks
