Scholars of British Romantic literature have become increasingly attentive to the material and cultural contexts inhabited by the period’s authors. This roundtable will showcase some of the innovative work being undertaken in this field for The Edinburgh Companion to Romanticism and the Arts. Each participant will offer a five-minute presentation of their chapter, organized around a key image, allowing plenty of time for discussion about how visual studies have reshaped how we approach and understand the boundaries between print and visual culture in the period.
Our speakers will include Laura Engel (Duquesne University), Ian Haywood (University of Roehampton), Jill Heydt-Stevenson (University of Colorado), Alison O’Byrne (University of York), and Kacie Wills (Illinois College). The session will be chaired by Maureen McCue (Bangor University) and Sophie Thomas (Ryerson University).
