Plenary III: Memory*

Sponsored by Houghton Library

The act of remembering at both the individual and collective level can have far-reaching implications. Remembering — and forgetting — comes to signify the relative importance of any particular combination of information and experience. In this closing plenary, we build on programming from throughout the conference to further explore the ways that memories and narratives interact, shaping what we as individuals and communities choose to remember. We will also examine the role of cultural heritage institutions in providing and interpreting primary sources for exploring our collective past.

Moderator: Daniel J. Slive, Head of Special Collections, Bridwell Library, Perkins School of Theology
