Laura Quinney, Brandeis University, Prof. The conference will be an invitation to look at Romantic meditations on the course of human life, from the poetics of infancy and coming of age, to the literature of maturity. Shelleyor awaiting an apocalyptic revelation at the end of time, Romanticism offers a meditation on history, reflecting on the burdens of the past and on the disruptions of time in revolutions.
That strain between reminiscence and prophecy also manifests itself in the multiple temporalities of Romantic fiction and performance. Subverting philosophical conceptions, but also the Newtonian physics of time, Romantic writing thus creates its own sense of time, in its own terms, forms, and figures.
In its ability to bend the course of time, the Romantic Cultural differences between poland and england appears as essentially untimely. Its uncanny persistence into later literary movements and contemporary theory upsets the linearity of periodization.
This conference is also an invitation to study the various temporalities of Romanticism as a form of cross-fertilization between nations. As Romanticism developed at different moments and within different cultures in Europe, but also across the Atlantic, we welcome comparative studies, based on reception and translation.
Topics may include but are not limited to: The representation and manipulation of time in Romantic writing and performance The poetics of infancy, coming of age, and maturity in Romantic writing Romanticism and History, from the revolutionary to the apocalyptic Romantic memory, from anamnesis to erasure Prophecy and the will to shape the future in the politics of Romanticism Untimely Romanticism, and its persistence in later literature and theory The times of Romanticism: Most presentations and papers will be in English.
Final papers will be considered for publication following a peer-review process. Abstracts of up to words along with a short biographical note should be sent to the conference organizers before 30 April Early submissions are encouraged.

Such critical work has enriched our understanding of romanticism and our appreciation of its planetary entanglements, but it also invites us to revisit cultural production in the war-torn long twentieth century that measures its distance from, and proximity to, romantic war-work.
Timed to coincide with the Centennial of the World War I Armistice, and taking place in an iconic world war heritage site, this conference is not only interested in the discrete if protracted events of the two World Wars. Taking seriously Paul K. How does the legacy of romanticism inform literary, aesthetic, and cultural responses to the age of World Wars?
Do literary and artistic engagements with the World Wars fit or update romantic templates for writing war time?
To what extent do romantic evasions and obsessions persist in global responses to war? To what extent does the global career of romanticism animate non-Western responses to wars that, even if they are called World Wars, were unevenly distributed across the globe?
And does the war-afflicted afterlife of romanticism open up new avenues for a comparative romanticism—for discovering novel differences and resonances between different national romanticisms?
What is the cultural impact of the fact that Britain was not involved in European wars between and excepting the Crimean War while casually waging World War as a Brexit Empire avant la lettre if neverand how does this affect cultural responses to twentieth- and indeed twenty-first-century World War across Europe and the globe?
The conference wants to explore these and other questions through a sustained confrontation of the legacy of romanticism in the age of World Wars. Apart from a number of sessions tailored by invited conveners, the conference will consist of sessions culled from the responses to the call for papers, two keynote lectures by Santanu Das and Paul K.
The work of Hartman, who died inconsisted in a sustained reflection on the interface of romanticism and the aftermath of trauma.
As Hartman was born in the interwar period in Germany, spent World War II in rural England, and moved on to a brilliant postwar career in the United States, his legacy invites us to probe the geographical and historical reach of the interface of romanticism and war. His stunning claim that somehow Wordsworth saved English culture from the disastrous ideologies that ravaged continental Europe in the twentieth century still deserves testing.
We invite proposals for minute presentations or for three-paper panels. Topics could include, but are emphatically not restricted to Romantic resonances in literary and artistic responses to the World Wars Challenges to romantic notions of war in global engagements with World War The afterlife of romantic tropes and techniques in World War literature and art The persistence of the lyric and other romantic genres in an age of war Transnational redeployments of romantic elements The relation between romanticism and modernism in the face of war Romanticism between revolution and catastrophe Romantic aspects of the imagining of globality, planetarity, and total war Liberalism, nationalism, and other political romanticisms Submission: Send proposals as a Word-document to raww kuleuven.
Panel proposals should contain a word panel description, word abstracts for the different papers, short bios of all panelists, and contact data. We will inform you about the acceptance of your proposal no later than 30 May For all queries, please contact raww kuleuven.
The aim of this conference is to question the film genre of the Western as being essentially American by focusing on the transnational dimension of Western narratives and images, as well as the circulation, reception, and production of Westerns outside the United States.

In recent film studies, the Western genre is still widely explored, understood, and constructed as an American genre despite overwhelming evidence of foreign production and global circulation since the invention of cinema.12 differences between a normal friend and a Polish friend.
