Public Lecture: "Beyond the Brain: memory in science and culture" 
Professor John Sutton (Macquarie University)

Human memory is subjective, neural, social, and technological. The study of remembering therefore requires the pooled resources and methods of many disciplines. Professor John Sutton develops an integrative approach to complex ecologies of memory which aims to span or dissolve the 'two cultures' divide. Describing recent research on how people remember shared experiences together, and on interactions between memory and movement skills, he argues that history and psychology are equally important in understanding how we make sense of our past.

Free admission. All welcome.

This lecture is presented by CHAST - the Centre for Human Aspects of Science and Technology at the University of Sydney.
