Romantic Regenerations
An International Conference

Date: 6-8 July 2018

Venue: The University of Tokyo (Komaba Campus) & Sophia University (Yotsuya Campus)

Plenary Lecturers:
Prof. Seamus Perry (Oxford University)
Prof. Alan Bewell (Toronto University)
Prof. Tim Barringer (Yale University)

This conference explores various ways and forms in which Romantic texts were regenerated in later periods, especially in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, in the Asian as well as Anglo-European contexts. A special focus will be given on the texts and arts which echoed, reshaped, and revised the texts of English Romanticism in the Victorian and Modernist periods, but papers on any related themes and subjects in any regions are most welcome. It hopes to examine various aspects of the regenerations and receptions of Romanticism.

The three-day conference offers a platform for literary and art-history scholars to get together and explore 'Romantic' texts and images generated in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Textual and visual regenerations of Romanticism in the Asian region or in cross-cultural contexts are most welcome.
