Proposals are invited for papers of 20 minutes on the theme of fringes of
Romanticism. This conference wishes to explore the genres, figures,
topics, and art forms outside the conventional confines of Romanticism and
Romantic studies. Sample topics could include Romantic drama, such as
Blake's Edward III; children's literature, such as Godwin's Fables; women
writers, such as Maria Edgeworth; or poets, composers or artists who are
not integrated into the canon. We also welcome topics that discuss the
debate surrounding the canon.

or Chantelle MacPhee, Department of English Literature, University of
