The Université de Lyon hosts the Institut universitaire de France’s symposium on memory

Du 17 June 2019 au 19 June 2019

On June 17, 18 and 19, the Université de Lyon had the pleasure of hosting the Institut universitaire de France’s interdisciplinary symposium, which focused on memory this year.

Whether artificial or natural, memory is not only a way of preserving the past; it is also forward-looking; it allows us to shape the future and can play an essential political, economic and social role. It provides information for all sciences and helps to structure modern societies while raising countless questions.

Plenary lectures and verbal communications provided a better understanding of memory and how different disciplines approach it.

Each day addressed a different theme:

  • Understanding memory;
  • Preserving memory;
  • Sharing memory.
