One might consider traveling well to be an art in and of itself. While there is a lot of logistical planning, organizational skill, and practical preparation that must go into a trip, the art of traveling well--one might argue--is the ability to adapt, even to thrive, when the planning fails. This panel invites papers that consider traveling from perspectives that move beyond the merely practical. Does the art of traveling vary by location? By time period? By cultural perspective? What kinds of arts and artifacts are encountered by travelers, and what qualities are necessary to appreciate them?

Always a prominent text in Western culture, the book of Revelations has been in the spotlight during the past year in particular due to the 2012 publication of Elaine Pagel's Revelations: Visions, Prophecy, and Politics in the Book of Revelation. Pagel, like many before her, recognizes the largely political nature of Revelations as she considers it from a historical and typological perspective.

2013 International Conference on Romanticism
"Romantic Relations"

We are extending the deadline for submissions until June 1st. We hope Americanists working across areas of 18th and 19th century studies will consider joining us.
