Provincializing Romanticism is a yearlong series of talks and workshop events bringing comparative scholars of global romanticism from within and beyond the Chicago area to Northwestern. The series looks at the cross-cultural exchanges, appropriations, and transformations that have shaped Eurocentric canons of capital-R Romanticism. We welcome faculty and graduate students interested in discussing literary, aesthetic, and historical itineraries of “the” romantic tradition in understudied contexts.
This series of Northwestern events is sponsored by Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences, The Graduate School; the Departments of Spanish and Portuguese, French and Italian, German; and Programs in Critical Theory, Comparative Literary Studies, and Middle East and North African Studies.
