      Comments Off on Unknown Tongues: Symposium on Romanticism’s Minor and Marginal Languages

24 September 2021

Registration (for free) is now open for ‘Unknown Tongues: Romanticism’s Minor and Marginal Languages’, a symposium to be held in September 2021. An international body of researchers will gather online on September 24th to discuss the Romantic significance of a range of “minor” linguistic traditions—from Romanian to Māori, Finnish to Gaelic—exploring their cultural contributions during the Romantic era, their continuing Romanticised relevance today, and the necessity of considering linguistic variety in diversifying the Romantic canon.

Papers will be recorded and distributed online to delegates via our website in early September, with panellists coming together to discuss their ideas live on September 24th, and a closing plenary response from Prof. Joep Leerssen (Amsterdam). Please see our website for further details.
