You are warmly invited to join us on Friday 1 March for the next meeting of the London-Paris Romanticism Seminar, which will be a book launch for The Oxford Handbook of British Romanticism, edited by our London Director, David Duff. Published by Oxford University Press, the Handbook brings together 46 specially commissioned essays by leading Romantic scholars from around the world, a number of whom will be joining us for this occasion. The event will begin with brief talks by the editor and other contributors about the aims of the Handbook and the new research it contains. This will be followed by questions and discussion and an extended wine reception with nibbles and canapés.
The event will take place in Room 349 (third floor) at Senate House, University of London, starting at 5.30pm. As with all our events, this event is free and open to everyone, including postgraduates and members of the public. If you would like to attend, please sign up for a free ticket on Eventbrite by clicking here. This will allow us to monitor numbers for catering purposes.
