The Amnesia Forums are conceived and organised by Shona Illingworth. They are a series of cross-discipline academic roundtable discussions for artists, scientists, geographers, historians, writers and researchers to explore key directions and debates surrounding current scientific insight into memory and amnesia, and contemporary discourse around the themes of individual and cultural amnesia and evolving constructions of place, location and identity. Each forum centres on a set of research questions. The Amnesia Forums are research-in-progress for Lesions in the Landscape: Claire and the Island of Hirta, a project led by Illingworth and funded by the Wellcome Trust, UK. Ongoing research for Lesions in the Landscape is presented by Illingworth at each forum and research presentations are given by all invited participants. The Amnesia Forum, Lesions in the Landscape was hosted by the Department of Psychology, City University and centred on questions such as: How does amnesia affect the capacity to imagine the future? and What affect does amnesia have on the shape of the social, cultural

and physical landscapes we inhabit? Chair: Professor Martin A. Conway (City University); Participants included: Shona Illingworth, (University of Kent); Dr Catherine Loveday, (University of Westminster); Claire Robertson, project collaborator; Dr Caterina Albano, Reader and curator, Central Saint Martins College of Art; Jill Bennett, Professor and Director of the National Institute for Experimental Arts, UNSW Australia; Gareth Evans, writer, curator and the Film Curator, Whitechapel Gallery, London; Kate Forde, Senior Curator, The Wellcome Trust; Professor Anson W.
