In this series of lunchtime talks, leading contemporary writers and researchers will address the theme of ‘The Tangible and Intangible Countryside’. They will look at various material dimensions of rural culture, while also thinking about processes, sounds and experiences of the countryside that cannot be touched or held. The series ties in with the MERL’s current ACE-funded ‘Museum of the Intangible’ project, led by Dr. Ollie Douglas.
