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:


2014 : New Romanticism Research Seminar Series

As of Michaelmas 2014, Romantic Realignments will become the 'Romanticism Research Seminar', and will be held fortnightly at Lincoln College.

(Please bear with us as the website undergoes a few alterations to its structure to incorporate this change.)

Michaelmas 2014 Termcard

The seminar will be held at 5:30pm in the Turl Yard lecture Hall, Lincoln College on the following Mondays

Week 3 (27 Oct): Professor Lucy Newlyn (St Edmund Hall) interviewed by Nicholas Halmi about her recently published dual biography of Dorothy and William Wordsworth

Week 5 (10 Nov): Ben Markovits, author of A Quiet Adjustment and other novels inspired by Lord Byron's life (his Faber webpage describes him as having "left an unpromising career as a professional basketball player to study the Romantics")

We look forward to a new academic year and many new faces at the seminar!
