Forthcoming seminar: RSVP essential – see below.

Dear All,Dr Catherine Loveday (Principal Lecturer in Neuropsychology at University of Westminster) and I would like to invite you to an informal seminar event presenting and discussing our current area of research exploring Memory and Clothing.The seminar will take place on Wednesday December 13th 2017 at 10am till about 12.30pm, at University of Westminster, New Cavendish Street, London W1W 6UW (nearest tube Warren St / Goodge St / Great Portland St).This seminar is an opportunity for us to share this project – rather than being a concluding event our intention is that it will form part of our ongoing research. Catherine and I will each present an outline of the research we have undertaken so far, exploring ways in which clothing is linked to autobiographical memory through scientific, material and cultural research. We will outline how science and art have influenced each other and how the trajectory of the project might develop. I hope there will also be a couple of short presentations from other artists working in this area. This will be followed by an informal discussion. Attendees are encouraged to bring (or wear) an item of clothing that has a particular memory of person, place or time. The item will be photographed and a brief audio recording made of your memory. This is of course entirely optional! Tea / coffee / biscuits will be served.

RSVP is essential as we need to put your name on the door to get in the building – [email protected]
