Welcome to Romantic Circles 2.0!

Welcome to our completely redesigned and redeveloped website!

We hope you can spend some time with the new site and offer us any feedback you may have. With a database infrastructure undergirded by basic premises of the Semantic Web, the new design offers new ways to explore our expansive content, collected over Romantic Circles’ 17 years. New features include content recommendation, mapping, streaming audio, usage statistics, image galleries and slideshows, and categorized taxonomies that allow users to navigate in customizable ways. On the front page you'll see a slideshow of the newest resources. A sidebar on the left shows media offerings--audio recommendations and a rage could based on the new taxonomy keyword system. In the right sidebar, statistics reveal, for example, the most popular pages searches. A news feed collects blog posts from several relevant blogs (including our own), and a list of CFPs on Romanticism culled and aggregated from U. Penn’s “Calls for Papers” site. Along bottom of the front page is a portal to a brand new section of the site, the Romantic Circles Gallery, edited by Theresa M. Kelley and Richard C. Sha.
