Join us for an evening focused on memory and the physical world, exploring how objects can act as vessels for feelings as well as recollections. How do we sense the past? How do we physically respond to objects that hold meaning for us, and how is that related our emotions? There is evidence that scent has a special relationship with memory and emotion. How true is that for our other senses? And what does that mean for our own mementoes and souvenirs? This evening we will learn about how objects and memory contribute to constructing our identities. Our speakers are all involved with the connection between emotion and objects, whether in terms of objects’ roles in structuring our memories or more focused on how we interact with their material properties.

The concept and definition of race is still a contentious subject in both science and society. From a scientific view, some would argue that race is a social construct with no biological meaning. From a societal perspective, race becomes an issue of politics, human rights, and prejudice. Making it very difficult to speak on the subject, especially as the classification of race has been so reliant on the use of one sense, sight. It makes sense to take the cognitive leap of relating features and colour of skin to a specific “race”. It does seem peculiar that in 2017 we are still having to discuss race, however given that so much of our current politics is being based on a nationalistic agenda, which in part touches the territory of race, we think it is a timely and necessary subject to discuss.
