Romantic Circles and the Keats-Shelley Association of America invite participants for a colloquium and working group designed to discuss and, in the end, produce a digital resource of anti-racist teaching and learning resources. RC Pedagogies and K-SAA see the work of discovering, gathering, developing, and elaborating anti-racist pedagogies as essential to our work as scholars and teachers, not to mention to the viability and relevance of the Romantic period more generally.
