Triggering Memory Symposium 2015

What initiates the willed or involuntary process of recall when memories might be, as A. S. Byatt describes, “taken out, burnished, and contemplated”? Sensory experiences, places, objects, images, language, rituals, and therapy are some of the means by which memory is evoked. Distinguished speakers from a variety of fields in New Zealand representing Massey University, The University of Auckland, Te Papa, and AUT, will be joined by artists and scholars from Syracuse University, United States, to present their perspectives on ‘triggering memory’.
