The International Conference on Romanticism announces its call for papers
for its 2004 Conference in Laredo, TX. The theme of the Conference is
Romantic Border Crossings, evoking a broad range of issues raised by the
concept of 'borders,' the often fuzzy boundary conditions that permeate all
areas of Romantic studies. Papers may focus upon colonialism, European and
American Orientalism, traveling theory, travel and imperialism, Romantic
geography, topographies, cartographies, international romanticisms, the
economies and contours of male desire, theoretical transitions in British
and American Romanticism, the borders between science and literature, the
Gothic and its interconnections to other Romantic genres, female Gothic,
sexual transgressiveness, intersections of race and geography, xenophobia
and the social sciences, the cultural polemics of children's literature,
preromanticism and belated romanticism, Romantic theory and theories of
Romanticism, Romanticism and philosophy, Transatlantic Romanticism.
