This symposium will explore and expand upon issues arising from the residency and exhibition, Bummock: Tennyson Research Centre. The speakers’ presentations will include an overview of the Tennyson Research Centre held in the Lincolnshire County Archives, connections between Tennyson, his family and the artworks, importance of the personal within the archive and its materiality, discussion about the sense of ‘place’ of the archive and these implications, an unpacking of the artists research and work within the TRC. There will be plenty of opportunity for questions and discussion at the end of the presentations. The symposium will be followed by a celebratory book launch of the publication arising from the project.
