The next meeting of the London-Paris Romanticism Seminar will take place on Friday 9 December and feature an international panel on The Poetics of the Letter. This is the first of our seminars with paired speakers from the UK and France, and we are delighted to welcome two outstanding scholars: Pamela Clemit of Queen Mary University of London, speaking on the topic Difficult to Make and Difficult to Fake: Signalling in Romantic-Period Letters, and Jeremy Elprin of the University of Caen, whose paper is entitled ‘Qui me néglige me désole’: The Neglected Countenance of Keats’s Letters. The abstracts appear below.
The seminar will be held in the Woburn Room at Senate House (ground floor, G22), starting at 5.30 (please note this is a change from the previously advertised room). The talk will be followed by a discussion and an extended wine reception, to which everyone is invited. Admission is free.
