Le Cliché romantique (1798-1830) Constructions et variations d’un objet littéraire – Conference 19-20 May

Amphithéâtre Alan Turing, 13 Place Aurélie Nemours, 75013 Paris


The aim of this conference is to identify various Romantic-period clichés and to analyse how they were built and played with. This will lead us to question the construction of a so-called Romantic identity in literary criticism, but also more generally in collective representations. The conference falls within the scope of comparative studies and we hope this will enable us to compare diverse receptions of Romanticism. We welcome panoramic proposals as well as proposals addressing a specific linguistic area (British, Irish, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Scandinavian Romanticisms…). Please submit abstracts of 300 to 500 words to Pauline Hortolland and Florence Schnebelen:  ; 


Keynote speaker
