The affective afterlife of poets' graves
A new book chapter from the project has been published in the edited collection Affective Architectures: More-Than-Representational Geographies of Heritage. The chapter describes my encounters with the graves of Tyneside poets and the search for the resting place of Robert Gilchrist.
Barge Day on the Tyne
Robert Gilchrist gave an eye-witness account to a familiar, though no longer performed, local ritual on the River Tyne. The Barge Day event was a significant civic occasion and Robert Gilchrist composed some amusing and patriotic songs to regale his friends as they processed along the river.
