This weekend sees the launch of the Memory Network, as core members meet for an academic symposium at the University of Roehampton. Over this two-day event, invited researchers from different disciplines will discuss crucial concepts, terms, debates and paradigms surrounding memory. ‘The Future of Memory’ symposium will present a chance for members to plan the Network’s future activities and potential collaborative projects and publications. It has been generously funded by the Wellcome Trust, with support from the University of Roehampton, Durham University, and University College, London.
The symposium will close with a public lecture on ‘The Future of Memory’ to be given by A. S. Byatt. The lecture will be followed by a panel discussion by Network members.
