CFP: "The Work of Romanticism," International Conference on Romanticism, Oakland University, MI, October 16-19, 2008.
We invite participants to consider the Work of Romanticism, interpreted as broadly as possible. Thus, topics may include, but are not limited to, working (agricultural, industrial, political, social, etc.); the text as work (e.g., editions, textual variants, the text per se, etc.); (re-)productive labor; the work of Romanticists; responses to works (e.g., reception, intertextuality, etc.); literary, artistic or intellectual labor; and leisure (including idleness, indolence, vacation, travel, retirement, etc.) We welcome proposals for special sessions. Submit 250 word abstracts electronically by April 15, 2008 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Proposals for special sessions should be submitted by March 1, 2008. Contact Chris Clason (email@example.com) or Rob Anderson (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information. The conference homepage is here: http://www2.oakland.edu/romanticism/call.cfm.
