Call For Papers: 'Romantic Performances'

Centre for Eighteenth-Century Studies, University of York


250-300 word abstracts on any issue related to Romanticism and the concept
of 'Performance' are welcomed for papers to be presented at this year's
Postgraduate Conference.  Subjects covered may include the relation
between Romantic writers and the stage, the anxiety about the opposition
between reading and performance, the search for and use of dramatic form
in the period, texts as stages for the creation of a projected 'self', or
the possibility that Romanticism itself could be seen as a 'performance.'

Abstracts must be received, by post or preferably as email attachments in
MS Word format, by 31st July 2002.  Please send them to:
