Romantic Circles Audio: Catherine Gallagher

Printer-friendly versionSend by email

Romantic Circles is very pleased to present here a special audio podcast of the plenary address delivered Thursday evening, 31 August 2006, at the NASSR/NAVSA 2006 conference at Purdue University by Catherine Gallagher of the University of California, Berkeley, "Slave Trade Suppression and Narratives of Undoing in the Atlantic."

Professor Gallagher's talk made use of slides showing characters in Jane Austen's Mansfield Park to accompany an imagined scene of conversation--a scene referred to but not actually found in the novel. Listeners to this podcast version may not always be able to follow who is speaking in the imagined dialogue, as Gallagher does the voices of characters in the novel, Fanny, Sir Thomas, Edmund, Maria, and others. But the contents of the conversation are clear enough, and we believe the act of imagination thereby required (not unlike listening to a radio drama) is very much in keeping with the spirit of Professor Gallagher's discursive experiment.

The entire address (with an introduction by Professor Dino Felluga) is downloadable in two parts by clicking on the speaker icons below.

Poets on Poets: Anne Waldman performs Shelley

Printer-friendly versionSend by email

Recently Romantic Circles' Poets on Poets section, edited by Tilar Mazzeo, was lucky to be able to post recordings of Shelley poems performed by poet Anne Waldman. For one, a political ode by Shelley written in 1819 in the aftermath of the Napoleonic wars and European restorations, Waldman reads accompanied by music. For the other, Shelley's "Ode to the West Wind," she alters her voice with interesting echo effects.

(Thanks to Doug Guerra for editing and producing these audio files for Romantic Circles.)
