Abstract

This paper articulates the experience of living and working in a Tasmanian boarding school as told in relation to a sequence of inter-related journeys that intersect and unfold around a domestic object; specifically, a wing chair that has been passed down through three generations of boarding house students, tutors and house masters. Within this article, the researchers unfold an a/r/tographic inquiry that examines entwining inter-generational experiences from and in relation to this wing chair, that through the years, bore witness to distinct yet interrelated personal and professional journeys within a Tasmanian boardingschool experience.
