“Romanticism across borders” is an online seminar dedicated to the literature of the Romantic period. It aims to create an international network and a research forum for postgraduate students and early-career researchers around the world and across borders. Our aim is to examine the notion of border in the Romantic era in the widest possible sense, and to see how it resonates with our contemporary situation. While the Covid-19 crisis made international travels difficult, innovative ways of crossing boundaries have been found which enable us to create new links between researchers from across the globe.
This seminar is hosted by Université de Paris (LARCA UMR 8225) and is organized by PhD students Camille Adnot, Félix Duperrier and Pauline Hortolland. It will take place on Zoom from March to May on Mondays, from 5:30pm to 7pm (London time).
