425: Romanticism Now II

8:30 AM–9:45 AM Saturday, Jan 5, 2019 (US - Central)

Hyatt Regency - Randolph 1

Session Information

Description: We aim to tap into how romanticists are positing historical relations as nonlinear and entangled but also to explore how Romanticism, as an aesthetic and political movement, might help literary scholars rethink historical methodologies. The literature of this era provides deep resources for thinking through today’s eventfulness and needs to be brought into dialogue with the “now,” providing parataxis that then becomes a site of potentiality.

For the other meeting of the working group, see 224.
