Dr. Marianne Lloyd reflects on Imagination and Memory: How does the
past shape our ability to imagine the future and the unknown? in the
last of four retreats for faculty and administrators of all faiths.
The Heart of the University Retreat Series gives faculty and
administrators of all faiths the opportunity for input and guided
reflection. The series is co-sponsored by the Office of Mission and
Ministry, and the Center for Vocation and Servant Leadership.
The fourth retreat, given by Dr. Marianne Lloyd on the theme of
Imagination and Memory: How does the past shape our ability to imagine
the future and the unknown? will be held on Wednesday, March 13, 2013,
from 9 to 11 a.m. in the Chancellor’s Suite, Student Center.
Our ability to think about the past influences our imagination of the
future. In this retreat, we will explore some of the recent empirical
findings on the interplay of memory and imagination, and how faith
practices based in memory (e.g., prayers, ritual) assist in imagining
what cannot be directly observed. In addition we will consider how
faith, which is rooted in a suspension of proof, perhaps becomes easier
thanks to memory.

Psychology at Binghamton University. She has published work on adult
memory performance and the development of memory in childhood and
