NeMLA 50th Annual Convention
March 21-24, 2019
Washington, DC

This panel will explore the changing sense of British identity for writers of the Romantic period. Papers are invited that consider the ways in which such writers as Lord Byron in Italy and Greece, Mary Shelley in Italy, William Wordsworth in France, and Samuel Taylor Coleridge in Germany may have developed new conceptions of themselves beyond their status as British subjects and revealed those conceptions in their writings of the period. Discussion of lesser known writers of the period is certainly encouraged.

 Proposals of 250-300 words may be submitted until September 30 through the NeMLA website:
