ENGAGED ROMANTICISM: Romanticism as Praxis

The 2006 International Conference on Romanticism
November 9th - 12th
Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ

*General Call for Papers*

While Romanticism is generally discussed as a period of literature, it
can equally be viewed as mode and a practice. As the phrase "Engaged
Romanticism" suggests, this year's conference will focus on activist
dimension of Romanticism as it sought to transform the public sphere
through its engagements with, and commitments to, matters artistic,
musical, philosophical, poetic, political, and/or theological. As well,
the conference seeks to explore the ways that Romantic Studies itself
pursues analogous forms of engagement with the world.

The conference organizers encourage respondents to imagine the broadest
possible interpretation of this year's thematic. The conference
organizer is Mark Lussier, Department of English, Arizona State
University , Tempe , AZ 85287-0302 , and contact can be initiated by
