2013 International Conference on Romanticism
"Romantic Relations"
September 26-29, 2013
Oakland University, Rochester, Michigan

The International Conference on Romanticism would love to increase the presence of Americanists at its annual conference-- all the more so given our globalist, transnational, transatlantic critical moment. 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.

This year's conference returns to metro Detroit and Oakland University (site of the 2008 meeting). In keeping with the spirit of this organization, the conference organizers wish to focus on the cross-disciplinary and international aspects of Romanticism. The conference theme is Romantic Relations, which should be interpreted in its broadest contexst. Possible topics could include but should not be limited to:

Cross-national and Transatlantic relations
Romantic race relations
Colonial relations
Relationships in the arts and music
Relations of Romantic Science
Romantic relations/relationships
Familial relationships
Romantic Others
Animal relationships
Class relations
Labor relations
Gender relationships
War and Peace
Boundary and border crossings
Critical relations
Romantic Collaborations
Philosophical relationships
Interdisciplinary Romanticism
Romantic travel

Abstracts for complete panels and individual papers are welcome. Please send 300 word abstracts to Rob Anderson ( or Chris Clason ( Deadline in June 1.
