Conference: Romantic Correspondence(s)

NEWSTEAD ABBEY, 4 NOVEMBER 2005

A one-day conference held by the centre for regional cultures, School of English Studies, University of Nottingham and the School of English, Nottingham Trent Unviersity, in Association with Newstead Abbey and the Midlands Romantic Seminar.

In the past decade and a half, scholarship on late eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century writing has highlighted both the narrowness of traditional conceptions of Romanticism’ and the possibilities inherent in activities such as expanding the canon and rehistoricising authors, texts and contexts. In so doing, the multiple correspondences and connections of romantic period culture are finally starting to be revealed.
