Memory and Slavery

  • Founded
    2001
  • Seminar Number
    689

The foundational premise of this seminar centers on the continued effects of slavery—in a wide variety of forms—in the United States. Such social constructs depend upon human conceptions, behaviors, and key neurobiological regulatory mechanisms sculpting them. Simultaneously, the seminar considers the ways in which the past may be experienced in the present; that is, the slavery of memory.

For the 2015-2016 academic year, the discussions focus upon many important contemporary debates in psychology, biomedical science, its policy, and bioethics. Members of this seminar include scientists, sociologists, clergy, physicians, therapists, scholars and others who share an interest in learning from the collective memories of slavery.
