If what and how we forget is an important part of what and how we remember, then how can we talk about the ways that forgetting both does and does not lend itself to legible strategies of representation? In relation to the various forms of autobiographical inquiry in teacher education, how might we construe the influence of forgetting as a kind of conspicuous absence? Phillips’ (2005) idea of a “Forgetting Museum” and Sarraute’s(1984) Enfance will both be considered for what they can teach us about the problems and possibilities of our remembrances and forgettings.
