Early childhood memory is complex and malleable as shown in Qi Wang and Sami Gülgöz’s new edited volume Remembering and Forgetting Early Childhood (Routledge, 2020). In a live, virtual Chats in the Stacks book talk Qi Wang, Professor of Human Development and Psychology in the College of Human Ecology will discuss diverse and insight-rich new scholarship on the memories of early childhood in children and adults. Originally published as a special issue of Memory, Remembering and Forgetting Early Childhood deepens our understanding of the dynamics that influence the accessibility, content, and accuracy of memories from early childhood, and how the development of autobiographical memory is shaped by a variety of interactive social and cognitive factors.
A live Q&A will follow the talk. The audience is encouraged to write their questions into the Chat field for inclusion during this session.
