Romantic Futurities

BARS ECR & PGR Conference, 12-13 June 2020

Thank you to everyone who made our move to an online format a success! This website will remain up as an archive of the BARS ECR & PGR ‘Romantic Futurities’ Conference.

Romantic Futurities invites an examination into the pluralistic theme of ‘futurities’ in Romantic-period literature and thought. This examination is inclusive of, but not limited to, the historical future, the anticipatory future, posterity, and the future of the field of Romanticism.

The BARS Early Career and Postgraduate Conference, held biennially in even-numbered years, provides a friendly forum in which researchers can present their own work, learn about professional practices, and socialise and connect with their contemporaries. Romantic Futurities is organised by the Early Career Representative, Paul Stephens (Oxford), and the Postgraduate Representatives, Amanda Blake Davis (Sheffield) and Colette Davies (Nottingham).
