Memory and oblivion in the library’s mind
25 November, 2017, 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm
One event on 25 November, 2017 at 2:00pm
‘Memory and oblivion in the library’s mind’ runs in two Saturday afternoon sessions exploring the ways in which imagery and ideas can be lost and found by the human brain and the mind of a library alike. Eight interactive talks will survey the removal and resurfacing of the past through curious case studies in art, religion, science, philosophy and astrology. The programme offers a unique opportunity to thumb through the history of the Warburg Library by looking at some of its rarest books and an invitation to explore a memory ward of paper through the words of its current researchers.
Talks on both Saturdays by: Anita Sganzerla (Courtauld Institute), and from Warburg Institute: Jill Kraye, Charles Burnett, Claudia Dianotti and PhD students Lorenza Gay, James Christie, Juan Acevedo and Antonia von Karais.
No booking required.
