Marianne LloydDr. 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.

Marianne Lloyd, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor of Psychology in the College of Arts & Sciences. She received her Ph.D. in Cognitive Psychology at Binghamton University. She has published work on adult memory performance and the development of memory in childhood and teaches the Journey of Transformation.
