Crocco, "The Ruins of Empire: Nationalism, Art, and Empire in Hemans's Modern Greece"

This study discusses the importance of the trope of ruins and the paradigm of decline and fall to the rhetoric of nationalism and imperialism in Felicia Hemans's Modern Greece. Contingent to this subject is an exploration of the ways in which female writers of the Romantic Period were able to enter the public sphere and broach the often male-gendered topoi of nationalism, travel, and empire by adopting differing patriotic stances and unique narratological structures. This essay appears in _Romanticism and Patriotism: Nation, Empire, Bodies, Rhetoric_, a volume of _Romantic Circles Praxis Series_, prepared exclusively for Romantic Circles (, University of Maryland.

Site One: A Romantic Education

This is a hyperlinked dialogue between Steve Newman and Professor Jerome Christensen, author of groundbreaking works on Romanticism. The discussion is built on four sites: 1) Professor Christensen's Romantic education during the rise of Continental theory in the American academy; 2) His critique of the prescriptions posited by new historicism in contrast to Romanticism's ethical imperative to converse; 3) The notion of a Romantic pedagogy in light of his work in digital media and its configurations of consumption as "addiction"; and 4) The place of our teaching and research in relationship to an increasing corporate academy and the cultures of the street.
