Romantic Realignments is one of the longest-running research seminars in Oxford.

Past speakers have included Marilyn Butler, Gerard Carruthers, David Chandler, Heather Glen, Paul Muldoon, Philip Shaw, Fiona Stafford and Peter Swaab, to name but a few.

All are very welcome to submit an abstract — we aim to provide a friendly 'workshop' setting in which speakers can try out new papers as well as more finished pieces, and in which lively discussion can flourish.

Held on Thursdays at 5.15pm, Seminar Room A, St Cross (English Faculty) Building.

If you would like to send us an abstract or suggest a speaker, please contact the current convenors Katherine Fender, Sarah Goode and Honor Rieley at:

JudWeek Six – Thursday 15th November

“Now is the time to cherish a glowing energy that may rouse into action
every nerve and faculty of the mind”: John Thelwall, Radical Anatomist
Mary Fairclough, University of York

Judith Thompson calls Thelwall “the silenced partner” of Wordsworth and Coleridge. As well as writing poetry and generically experimental prose he was one of the most important and prominent radical leaders, and one of those charged with high treason in 1794. His politics took many forms including, arguably, his contribution to medical debate about the “vital spirits”.

All are welcome to join us for discussion.

Ferrar room, Hertford College 5.15, Thursday 15th November
