Romantic Reflections: Twins, Echoes, and Appropriations
2014 International Conference on Romanticism
University of St. Thomas, Minneapolis, 25-28 September 2014
The International Conference on Romanticism was founded in 1991. The fundamental aim of ICR from its inception has been to pursue the study of Romanticism without favoring particular linguistic, national or political traditions, or academic disciplines, either explicitly or implicitly.
In keeping with the spirit of the ICR, the conference organizers wish to focus on the cross-disciplinary and international aspects of Romanticism. The theme will be Romantic Reflections: Twins, Echoes and Appropriations, which should be interpreted in its broadest context.
Plenary speakers: Göran Blix (Princeton), Andrew Elfenbein (Minnesota), Theresa M. Kelley (Wisconsin-Madison), Peter Otto (Melbourne), Judith Pascoe (Iowa)
The deadline for submission of abstracts is 21st April 2014.
More information is available on the conference web site.
