The Romanticism panel is seeking papers on any aspect of Romanticism, but we are particularly interested in papers that will address the conference theme "The Sense of Sight: Visuality, Visibility, and Ways of Seeing." As part of the material culture in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, writers have attempted to reify themselves through textual or visual representations (e.g., letters, fiction, verse, and fine art through portraiture, etc.). Paper proposals that delve into the value of such cultural constructions in the context of the Romantic era and consider the effect of the writer's self-fashioning and self-projecting representations are especially welcome. Paper proposals (400-500 words) for consideration should be posted through the cfp portal at https://www.pamla.org/node/add/proposal.
