The 2009-2010 Lewis University lecture series “Art of Memory: Collective and Individual” is now archived online. Art of Memory was the inaugural presentation of a biannual symposium hosted by the Lewis University History Center. The events were presented in partnership with the Arts & Ideas program at Lewis University.
Dr. Ewa K. Bacon, professor of history, conceived and organized the symposium. Bacon said, “There are 26 presentations on the site. The public might find Dr. Erin Zimmer’s presentation ‘The Biological Foundations of Short Term and Long Term Memory’ interesting. Others might want to view Christian Brother Joseph Martin’s ‘Recovering Family History through Memories.’ The great thing is that these presentations are just a mouse click away.”
Dr. Dennis H. Cremin, director of the Lewis University History Center, said “It is so exciting to see all of the scholarly work. Dr. Bacon is to be commended for her energy and vision. We are all looking forward to ‘Food for Thought’ and thank Dr. Mike McFerron and Marketing and Communications for allowing us to appreciate the scholarly presentations of the Art of Memory.” The Lewis University History Center recently announced “Food for Thought” as a topic for Fall 2011/Spring 2012.
