Remembering and Forgetting Early Childhood

Thursday, November 18, 2021 at 4:00pm to 5:00pm

Virtual Event

Our earliest memories are complex and ever-shifting. In a live, virtual Chats in the Stacks book talk, Qi Wang—professor of human development and psychology in the College of Human Ecology—will discuss insights from Remembering and Forgetting Early Childhood (Routledge, 2020), a book she co-edited with Sami Gülgöz.

Originally published as a special issue of Memory, the book deepens our understanding of the dynamics that influence the accessibility, content, and accuracy of memories from early childhood, and how the development of autobiographical memory is shaped by a variety of interactive social and cognitive factors.

A live Q&A will follow the talk. The audience is encouraged to submit their questions in the chat.
