The 18th annual International Conference on Romanticism will meet at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas from November 11-14. We will explore ways in which writers, playwrights and poets from the Romantic period as well as contemporary critics have participated in what might be termed "Pioneering Romanticism". The Romantic period marked a time of change and innovation. This year's conference will explore the novel contributions and pioneering efforts made, but not limited, to the following areas: literature, poetry, art, music, philosophy and politics. We will also address the influence Romantic ideals have had on the innovations and ideals of later time periods and in various countries. We welcome paper proposals that loosely address some aspect of the theme "Pioneering Romanticisms". We encourage proposals for papers and panels from all disciplines.

Please submit 300-500 word proposals to icr2010@ttu.edu, subject line ICR proposal.
