NWRECS 2017: “Romanticism Then and Now”
October 20 - October 22The Center for the Humanities, Autzen House, Oregon State University
Following a highly successful works-in-progress symposium hosted by BYU and the University of Utah in Fall 2014 (at Aspen Grove, next door to Sundance in the Wasatch mountains), this second by-invitation gathering will bring together scholars based primarily in Oregon, Utah, Washington, and British Columbia. We look forward to meeting on the campus of Oregon State University, and extending the productive and collegial atmosphere of the pilot event to the Pacific Northwest.
In addition to works-in-progress sessions, there will be a session devoted to planning future collaborations as well as to strategizing how to achieve higher visibility for eighteenth-century studies and Romanticism, both within academic institutions and in the public sphere at large.
Sponsors for this event include OSU’s Center for the Humanities, the OSU School of Writing, Literature, and Film, BYU’s Department of English, the BYU Humanities Center, and the Romantic Bicentennials Project. We are pleased to be a Romantic Bicentennials networked event.
