Frances Yates: The Art of Memory -programme

Frances Yates Banner2




The great Renaissance and Shakespeare scholar Frances Yates lived for over half a century in Kingston-upon-Thames, and to mark the 50th anniversary of her great book The Art of Memory, Kingston Shakespeare Seminar will host a one-day conference on her life and work at the Rose Theatre: a playhouse inspired by her theories of the ‘memory theatre’ and the ‘theatre of the world’. Close to where Yates wrote her books, a range of international scholars will evaluate their enduring influence, and reflect on her ideas about memory, Europe, empire, occult philosophy, academies, architecture, performance, intellectual history, and the place of a scholarly community in the modern world.
