ROMANTICISM'S DEBATABLE LANDS
http://www.ncl.ac.uk/bars2005/
28-31 July 2005
University of Newcastle
Newcastle upon Tyne, UK

The phrase 'Debatable Lands' has been used in reference to disputed parts of the Anglo-Scottish Border since at least the sixteenth century. Popularised by Walter Scott, the term was extended to other geographical areas and into metaphorical use in the nineteenth century. Macaulay in 1828 described history as the "debatable land" between Reason and Imagination. The BARS conference of 2005 invites an assessment of Romanticism's Debatable Lands in the fullest and broadest senses of the phrase.

The South West Interdisciplinary Romanticism Link (SWIRL) has three aims: to strengthen a network of scholars working on different aspects of the period 1750-1850, to facilitate debate across the disciplines, and to boost the profile of Romantic studies in the region. We envisage a forum in which academics from the South West and beyond could explore the intellectual and professional challenges that currently energise our field.
