British Association for Romantic Studies - BARS - Other Seminars

Welcome to BARS

The British Association for Romantic Studies (BARS) was set up in 1989 by academics to promote the study of the cultural history of the Romantic period. Since then, BARS has organised eight International conferences at various locations in the UK, has published the BARS Bulletin and Review twice-yearly, and currently has more than 350 members.

South West Interdisciplinary Link (SWIRL)

 

The South West Interdisciplinary Romanticism Link (SWIRL) has three aims: to strengthen a network of scholars working on different aspects of the period 1750-1850, to facilitate debate across the disciplines, and to boost the profile of Romantic studies at our institutions and in the region. It provides a forum in which academics from the South West can explore the intellectual and professional challenges that currently energise our field.

On 29 October, scholars from the universities of Cardiff, Swansea, Exeter, Southampton, University of the West of England, Bristol, Reading, Glamorgan, and the University of Central England met in Bristol for the first SWIRL symposium. They came from departments of English, French, German, History, Philosophy, Music, History of Art, Sociology, Hispanic, Portuguese and Latin American Studies, and Pathology and Microbiology. In a series of round table discussions, they shared their research and began an interdisciplinary conversation that SWIRL aims to sustain in the future.

Our discussions left us convinced that SWIRL could play an important role by promoting collaboration and debate across the region and among the disciplines. In order to build on the foundation laid by our first symposium, we have set up an email listserv, and hope to extending our activities into a second SWIRL symposium as detailed below.

Anyone interested in joining the SWIRL mailing list should e-mail John Halliwell at the e-mail address above.
