There’s lot of interest in the paranormal and ghosts these days. For several years, Rachael Ironside and Robin Wooffitt have undertaken research into the work of people who conduct investigations into the paranormal. Their research uses ethnomethodology and conversation analytic studies of interactive meetings and sessions of these investigations.

Marc Eaton who himself has recently published a book titled “Sensing Spirits: Paranormal Investigation and the Social Construction of Ghosts” has reviewed Ironside and Wooffitt’s book “Making Sense of the Paranormal: The Interactional Construction of Unexplained Experiences”.
