We are pleased to announce the Memory and Mental Files workshop, to be held *in-person* at the Centre for Philosophy of Memory (Grenoble, France) on Friday April 28, 2023.

The workshop will bring together philosophers and psychologists who work on issues relating, on one hand, to object- and event-files in perception and cognition, and, on the other hand, to the representation of objects and events in semantic and episodic memory.
