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:

  1. In the section about Michaelmas Term 09 you say "all are very welcome", and I was just wondering if that literally meant "all". I'm a first year undergraduate reading English at Oxford and I'm really interested in Romanticism - I don't know if the people who attend your seminars are mainly graduates or not, but if it's possible for undergraduates to come too, I'd be interested in coming.

  2. Hey Alex,

    Of course you are welcome to RR. It's a great way to soak up all things Romantic and meet other people interested in the era. I look forward to seeing you there!
