      Comments Off on Romantic Disconnections/Reconnections Details

We are delighted to announce that the full programme for BARS’ August Digital Conference, Romantic Disconnections/Reconnections, is now available on the conference website.  We have over one hundred and twenty Romanticists giving talks, hosting discussions, sharing expertise and (re)connecting after a tough year (while hopefully avoiding too many technological disconnections…).

The conference runs in two blocks (Thursday 12th and Friday 13th and Thursday 19th and Friday 20th), with each day kept relatively brief to avoid Zoom fatigue (although if you’re keen for more discussions, we have a whole range of salons and social events around and between the main blocks).  We’ve tried to pick times to accommodate speakers from around the world (we have presenters spanning seventeen time zones), but we’ll also be recording sessions and making these recordings available to delegates for a limited time, so all participants should be able to see everything they want to.

We’ve now opened general registration, so if you’d like to come along to all or part of the conference, you can sign up using the form on the registration page.  We’ll then add your details to our list so you can receive conference communications and the Zoom links to the actual sessions.  There’s no fee for the conference, but all delegates must be current BARS members (if you need to rejoin, you can do so from the main BARS site).

If you’d like to participate in any of our fifteen excellent salons, you’ll need to sign up for these individually after you’ve signed up for the main conference.  These are designed to be small-group discussions, so our salonnières have specified how many guests they’d like to admit.  The topics are listed on a dedicated page on the conference site, and you can sign up by using the password you’ll receive after registering to access the relevant page.
