THE BRITISH ASSOCIATION FOR ROMANTIC STUDIES is pleased to announce that the 2024 International Biennial Conference will be held at the University of Glasgow. An in-person conference will take place between Tuesday 23rd July 2024 and Thursday 25th July 2024, with online elements taking place around the in-person event (exact dates to be determined).
Following the postponement caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, our last conference – hosted jointly with the North American Society for the Study of Romanticism – at Edge Hill University in Summer 2022 was our largest and most varied yet. BARS/NASSR 2022 followed three successful conferences (Cardiff 2015, York 2017, Nottingham 2019), as well the online ‘Romantic Disconnections/Reconnections’ international conference in summer 2021. These recent gatherings have seen our attendance grow and diversify, and delegate feedback has been very positive.
Building on this momentum, we are very much looking forward to working with the University of Glasgow in continuing to build on the successful BARS model to try and find the best balance of in-person and digital provision. A Call for Papers will be published later in October and further information will be circulated in the coming months.
