What We Remember. What to Forget.
Join Catalyst Conversations for a conversation about memory and forgetting with scientist, John Gabrieli, and writer, poet, and cultural critic, Lewis Hyde. Memory is a major focus for Gabrieli. His lab employs neuroimaging to study the brain structure and function of people with neuropsychiatric challenges such as anxiety, depression, and schizophrenia. Hyde’s latest book, A Primer for Forgetting: Getting Past the Past explores the many situations in which forgetfulness is more useful than memory—in myth, personal psychology, politics, art & spiritual life.
