Madelon Sprengnether, Faculty Fellow, Spring 2006

Madelon Sprengnether (Department of English, College of Liberal Arts)

During her semester in residence, Professor Sprengnether planned to investigate the ways that contemporary neuroscience—based in recent discoveries about areas of the brain involved in specific brain operations, such as encoding, retrieval and degradation of memory—helps to elucidate contemporary practices of memoir writing. She also completed her own memoir-in-progress, Great River Road, which addresses these issues in the context of the cumulative effects of memory over time.
