How have residual marks been created, left, and remembered? How might we conceptualize these afterlives and effects of experiences, perceptions, processes, and events? Traces acquire meaning through acts of discovery, juxtaposition, re-presentation, and relocation.2 If traces are present yet not always visible, define the “thing” through a web of relations between the listener and teller yet are not animated until they come alive in particular settings, are always already known but not recognizable until they are brought out again in yet new but familiar forms, then the concept of spectral traces may provide us with a language of belonging, even as such traces speak of past loss.
