This talk will discuss the emotionality childhood nostalgias using a biosocial approach.

Speaker: Tess Osborne, Doctoral Researcher, Research and Teaching Associate, Visiting Lecturer in GEES

The talk will focus on the individual experiences of space by looking at the emotional responses to their childhood memories. Memory, as research field is predestined for an interdisciplinary approach, since reminiscing has a biological basis yet consists of social contents and this paper unpicks both through a combination of narrative methods and biosensing technology. It will show that childhood nostalgias can enrich an individual’s connection with their immediate environment through an emo-memorial flow between imaginative bodies and the evocative landscape which, in turn, enriches a person’s sense of place and belonging with others.

All welcome!
