2014 International Conference on Romanticism

The 2014 International Conference on Romanticism, exploring the theme of "Romantic Reflections," will be hosted by the University of St. Thomas in downtown Minneapolis from September 25-28.

Thursday, September 25, 2014
12:00 PM - 12:00 PM

Millennium Hotel (1313 Nicollet Mall, Minneapolis, MN 55403), with some events being held on the downtown Minneapolis campus of the University of St. Thomas

The 2014 meeting of the International Conference on Romanticism will be held in Minneapolis, Minnesota in the heart of downtown on the banks of the Mississippi river September 25th-28th. In keeping with the spirit of the ICR, the conference organizers wish to focus on the cross-disciplinary and international aspects of Romanticism. The theme will be Romantic Reflections: Twins, Echoes and Appropriations, which should be interpreted in its broadest context.

The International Conference on Romanticism was founded in 1991. The fundamental aim of ICR from its inception has been to pursue the study of Romanticism without favoring particular linguistic, national or political traditions, or academic disciplines, either explicitly or implicitly. For more information, please visit the ICR website.

This year's plenary speakers are:

  • Göran Blix, Associate Professor of French and Italian at Princeton University
  • Andrew Elfenbein, Professor of English at the University of Minnesota
  • Theresa M. Kelley, Marjorie and Lorin Tiefenthaler Professor of English at the University of Wisconsin-Madison
  • Peter Otto, Professor of English & Theatre Studies at the University of Melbourne
  • Judith Pascoe, M. F. Carpenter Professor of English at the University of Iowa

We are grateful to the sponsors and supporters of ICR 2014: the University of St. Thomas (Minnesota) College of Arts and Sciences, Modern and Classical Languages, English and Art History Departments.
