Tuesday seminar on March 28

At this Tuesday seminar, Mare K├Áiva reviews the study Cognitive Maps and the Construction of Narrative Space by Marie-Lauren Ryan.
The studies, initiated by psychologist Edward Tolman in 1948, have developed into an extensive area of research into memory and spatial relationships. How people remember graphic maps and how mental images of spatial environments (cities or even dreamlands) are being created. M.-L. Ryan observes the reconstruction of a fictitious map of the world on the basis of narrative. The author explores the interrelation of cognitive maps and memory processes and the division of maps in the narrative world.
The seminar begins at 12 in room 234 of the Literary Museum.
