The Ghost in the Image
Sofie Lachapelle has been at the University of Guelph since January 2005.  She is a historian of science with a PhD from the University of Notre Dame.  She is the author ofInvestigating the Supernatural: From Spiritism and Occultism to Psychical Research and Metapsychics in France, 1853-1931 (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2011).  In her current work, she explores the world of nineteenth-century magicians and the relationship between science, magic and wonder during this period.
The University of Guelph resides on the land of the Between the Lakes Treaty No. 3, the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. This land is part of the Dish with One Spoon, a covenant between Indigenous nations to live peaceably on the territories of the Great Lakes region. We recognize that today this gathering place is home to many First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples and acknowledging them reminds us of our collective responsibility to the land where we learn, live and work.
