Social Aspects of Memory Workshop

When: June 26th, 2013
Where: Rotterdam
Deadline for submissions: March 29th, 2013

Since F. C. Bartlett, students of memory have recognized the importance of social influences in shaping memory, yet to a surprising degree, memory researchers have sought to control for these effects rather than study them.  The situation is changing, however.  Among other topics, the study of conversational influence on memory, collaborative remembering, cultural differences in memorizing and remembering, and collective memory have burgeoned in the last decade or so. The workshop is designed to provide a separate space for researchers interested in these and related topics.  Although time will be limited, we hope to provide a forum for interested researchers and an opportunity for them to get to know each others’ work.

The social aspects of memory workshop will be held in affiliation with SARMAC.

Interested researchers are invited to submit a proposal for a talk.  We plan to adopt a “blitz” format and limit each talk to five minutes, followed by a discussion period of 10 minutes.   This format should provide both an overview of the range of research currently exploring social aspects of memory, but, more importantly, allow participants to share their different perspectives.

In order to submit a proposal for a presentation, send a 100-word abstract to the email below by March 29, 2013.  Participants in the workshop must be registered attendees at SARMAC 2013.

Proposal should be submitted to:  SocialMemorySARMAC2013@gmail.com

And include:
   Presenter’s Name, Affiliation, and Email
   A list of co-authors, with their affiliations
   A title
   A 100-word abstract

The submission should be in the form of a doc or docx file, with the last name of the presenter, followed by the initial of the first name, as the file name.  The subject heading for the email should be the same as the file name.
