Re-wired: Memory in the Digital Age

October 4, 2013 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join us to explore the impact of the Internet, digital technology and social media on human memory. From Google and GPS to lifelogging services, we are outsourcing more and more cognitive faculties. But are we really becoming shallower, lazier, more stupid? Join novelist Adam Roberts (New Model Army), Stacey Pitsillides (Digital Death), Wendy Moncur (Living Digital, University of Dundee) and Elad Ben Elul (The Album People) to debate one of the most important issues facing us in the 21st Century.

This event is organised by AHRC Science in Culture Research Network: The Memory Network and is taking place as part of the Cheltenham Festival.
