Call for Papers


Romanticism and Popular Culture, an affiliated session of the Keats-Shelley Association of America at the South Atlantic Modern Language Association 89th Annual Conference in Atlanta, Georgia, USA (3-5 Nov. 2017)


In keeping with this year’s conference theme (“High Art/Low Art: Borders and Boundaries in Popular Culture”), this panel seeks papers that address topics related to popular culture and British Romantic-era literature, although other Romanticism-related topics certainly will be considered.  Sponsored by the Keats-Shelley Association of America, this affiliated session especially welcomes papers related to second-generation Romantic-era British writers and/or their literary circles, namely those addressing the lives and/or works of John Keats, Percy and Mary Shelley, Lord Byron, Leigh Hunt, and William Hazlitt.
