History on Display: How Viewers Respond

Date and time: 
Friday, February 14, 2014 - 10:00 to 13:00
New York, New York


Denis Peschanski and Yves Burnod will present an innovative experiment using eye-tracking technology and Inspot smart sensors to measure what visitors to historical museums look at and for how long. Conducted at the Mémorial de Caen, the French national museum on the Second World War, the experiment attempts to uncover how memorial and historical sites affect—and are affected by—the brain dynamics of memory. The presentation will be followed by a discussion by Adam Brown, a cognitive psychologist who investigates the construction of autobiographical memory, and Marianne Hirsch, celebrated for her work on Holocaust memory.
