Romanticism as Praxis 

The 2006 International Conference on Romanticism

November 9th – 12th

Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ

While Romanticism is generally discussed as a period of literature, it can equally be viewed as mode and a practice. As the phrase "Engaged Romanticism" suggests, this year's conference will focus on activist dimension of Romanticism as it sought to transform the public sphere through its engagements with, and commitments to, matters artistic, musical, philosophical, poetic, political, and/or theological. As well, the conference seeks to explore the ways that Romantic Studies itself pursues analogous forms of engagement with the world.

The conference organizers encourage respondents to imagine the broadest possible interpretation of this year's thematic. The conference organizer is Mark Lussier, Department of English, Arizona State University , Tempe , AZ 85287-0302 , and contact can be initiated by e-mail at mark.lussier@asu.edu .
