An interdisciplinary seminar in Literature and Cultural History 1780-1830
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: firstname.lastname@example.org
