Registration URL

This workshop is run by Dr Sam Hirst and Simon Brown, collections curator at Newstead Abbey. The workshop focuses on the 'literary house' as a cultural heritage site and will look at the role of the literary house in preserving legacies and bringing writers to new audiences: local, national and international. The workshop will use Newstead Abbey as a case study and look at the possibilities for academic collaboration from a variety of disciplines with literary houses. There will be an opportunity to discuss and workshop ideas for collaborative endeavours with a practical focus on diverse audiences of all ages, on-site interpretation, and the intersections of material and literary history in the literary house.

This workshop can be attended as a stand alone workshop but there will be a follow up workshop on-site at Newstead Abbey on 15th March. Attendance at both workshops leads to the opportunity to take part in mini-archival projects on site at Newstead Abbey, with your work forming part of displays marking the bicentenary of Byron's death. The workshops are open to people from all departments and we encourage participation from all disciplines.

If you cannot attend the workshop but are interested in taking part in the projects, please contact Dr Sam Hirst directly.

This workshop is hosted as part of a partnership between Nottingham University, Nottingham City Council and the Newstead Abbey Site. It is funded by the AHRC IAA grant to Dr Sam Hirst.
