Memory and education were closely linked concepts. Memory, the very basis of intellectual activity, was formed in the schoolroom and under the tutelage of masters in the Middle Ages. This session will explore two approaches to memory and education: the strategies of developing memory and the memory of the training itself – the recollections of going to school.
