Wednesday, December 9, 2015 - 2:22am
Dr Andrew McInnes, Edge Hill University

The traditional boundaries of Romanticism - six male poets; the definite articles of Romantic image, imagination and ideology; an implicit focus on Englishness - have been comprehensively contested to transform the discipline into the study of Romanticisms, including novels, plays, polemic, periodicals and print culture alongside a widening canon of poetry; questioning the ideology of the Romantic Ideology; and expanding borders spatially, to include Four Nations, archipelagic, Europe-wide, transatlantic and postcolonial approaches, and temporally, beyond the 1790s and early nineteenth century to imagine a Romantic century running from ca. 1750-1850.
