EVENT: Research Results Unveiling

Snidge Scrumpin

At this event the Snidge Scumpin’ project will reveal the findings of its research into what specific smells belong to the Black Country, and what particular memories they evoke in Black Country locals. Psychologist Dr Tom Mercer has crunched hundreds of pages of data and will unveil which particular Black Country smells resonated with the participants.

Senior Lecturer in TESOL Judith Hamilton investigated the language participants used to describe the odours used in the experiment. The team will also unveil the Top 5 Black Country smells. To celebrate the success of the research, Kerry Hadley-Pryce, R. M. Francis and Liz Berry will perform short pieces on their olfactory associations with the Black Country.

The big reveal will be part of this year’s Wolverhampton Original Literature Festival:
