Halloween: turning to the supernatural to work through our anxieties

Press/Media: Article/Feature


Why is Halowwen such a commenrcial focus for our fears and desires? Rather than stopping at discussions of morally correct conduct at Halloween, Professor Riach and Dr Kelly look at cases of halloween commercial 'mistakes' and suggest that we might also use this time of year to reflect on our own fears and how we engage with them through the costumes, horror movies, and associated Halloween products available to us. By reflecting on what frightens us, we may also make space for discussions about who deserves our respect, compassion and care.
