A five-week seminar for sixteen college and university faculty to study British Romanticism in light of evolving scholarship.

This 5-week Summer Seminar for College Teachers combines a common set of readings and directed discussion with individual research projects to help participants reassess the historical influences upon modern conceptions of "British Romanticism" of extra-literary factors involving political, economic, scientific, moral, gender and class considerations, especially as affected by recent revisionist scholarship in those areas and in traditional literary and cultural studies. Members will participate in comparative study of selected primary literary works and contemporary reviews of them in light of both recent interdisciplinary literary, cultural and theoretical scholarship and the diverse ongoing recovery projects that are expanding and reconfiguring the literary landscape of Romantic-era Britain. The seminar revisits - aiming to reconceptualize and redefine - issues of literary judgment, canonical status and varieties of audience response involved in British Romantic literary production.
