The Poetics and Politics of (Dis)location, Migration and Transculturality in the Long Romantic Period (ca. 1750-1850) (Masaryk University, Brno, Czech Republic: 29 August - 2 September 2018)

Deadline: 31 Jan 2018

A pervasive dialectics in British Romantic literature and culture is that between a rooted sense of place, natural landscape, domestic topography on the one hand, and an opposite impulse towards rootlessness, exile and movement beyond familiar geographical and cultural boundaries. The seminar intends to explore how Romantic-period texts and authors confront the complex intermeshing of these aspects as well as the relationships between place, space and identity. Proposals for individual papers are invited on the following topics (though not limited to them):

* local/ global, national/ transnational approaches to Romantic authors and texts;
* migration;
* dislocation;
* the refugee experience;
* expatriation;
* exile;
* homelessness;
* dispossession;
* race, class, and/or gender issues in relation to space and place;
movement(s); crossing boundaries.

Proposals for 15-minute papers should be sent by email to all three conveners, and should not exceed 300 words. Please include a short (ca 200 words) bio-bibliographical blurb.
