Edge Hill University will host a series of modern Table Talks – interactive workshops led by relevant scholars in the field of Romantic Studies, with an aim to explore new perspectives on Romantic aesthetics, Romantic engagement with nature, society, and childhood, as well as later representations of Romantics and Romanticism. These ‘Table Talks’ will be structured as informal workshops bringing together established academics with postgraduate students and early career scholars to discuss new methodologies in Romantic Studies.

Join an excellent group of academics on Wednesday 16th December from 6pm to 8 pm for an evening of close readings highlighting new approaches to nature in Romantic Studies.
