Ghostlore или ghost-lore је, укратко, поджанр фолклора усредсређен на приче о духовима које се могу наћи и у прединдустријским и у савременим контекстима. Већина ових прича су повезане са кућама и другим зградама које су или пропале или још настањене али се могу најбоље описати као приватна места. Због природе јавних места – било да су повезана са искуствима људи или се могу описати као не-места – необично је „наћи“ духове на њима, једнако као што је необично наћи их у парковима или на улицама. Ипак, оваква места остају друштвена места, отворена за различите интерпретације и симболизме. Кроз анализу одређених онлајн садржаја, углавном аплоудованих од стране група које своје праксе описују као „истраге“ паранормалног или окултног, у овом раду ће бити расправљена веза између ghost-lore-а и јавних места, углавном у Атини. Надаље, важан аспект демонстрирања ефективности ових онлајн садржаја чине коментари које нетизени (грађани онлajн света) који прате ове „истраге“ остављају, а који резултирају формирањем нових група. Ове групе се формирају онлaјн, али се воде заједничким интересом за питање духова у офлајн свету. Стога, како бисмо истражили како се физички јавни простор реинтерпретира у духу натприродног, овај рад има намеру да приступи дигиталном јавном простору друштвених мрежа.

Кључне речи: Ghostlore, јавна места, натприродно, друштвене мреже, нетизени
