The next seminar in the London-Paris Romanticism Seminar series will take place via Zoom on Friday 20 November 2020 and feature an international panel on Romantic Paper Arts. As our guest speakers for this special interdisciplinary event, we are delighted to welcome two leading international scholars, Heather Hyde Minor, Professor of Art History at the University of Notre Dame, who will speak on Piranesi’s Trash; and Catriona MacLeod, Professor in Germanic Studies at the University of Chicago, whose talk is entitled The Violent Potency of Paper: Romantic Scherenschnitte. Abstracts of their papers appear below. The two illustrated talks will be followed by a discussion in which questions from the audience are invited. The panel will be chaired by Luisa Calè (Birkbeck, University of London).
The seminar is free and open to everyone, including postgraduates and members of the public. Prior registration is necessary.
