Memory and the Formation of Individual and Collective Identities

What would we be without memory?. Hard to imagine, because it’s not just that we couldn’t answers questions such as “where did I leave my mobile”, but we wouldn’t even be able to recall “what I did yesterday”. This seminar will foster a discussion, from a variety of disciplines and perspectives, about the essentiality of memory for the formation of individual and collective identities, and to that effect we have invited neuroscientists, psychologists, physicians, technologists, sociologists, and historians to engage in a substantive yet accessible reflection on different aspects of memory, from the neuroscience of memory and memory disorders, to history and the politics of memory, to artificial memory and other recall enhancements.
