The 2008 International Conference on Romanticism will be held on October 16-19 at Oakland
University in Rochester, Michigan.
We invite participants to consider the Work of Romanticism, interpreted as broadly as possible.
Thus, topics may include, but are not limited to, working (agricultural, industrial, political, social,
etc.); the text as work (e.g., editions, textual variants, the text per se, etc.); (re-)productive labor;
the work of Romanticists; responses to works (e.g., reception, intertextuality, etc.); literary, artistic
or intellectual labor; and leisure (including idleness, indolence, vacation, travel, retirement, etc.) We
welcome proposals for special sessions.
