Studien zur Englischen Romantik, Band 6

Lars Eckstein and Christoph Reinfandt (Eds.)
Romanticism Today
Selected Papers from the Tübingen Conference
of the German Society for English Romanticism


As a set of responses to the rapidly changing modern world, Romanticism has lost none of its topicality today. For the last 250 years it has persisted in all available media, and continues to shape a great variety of cultural practices in fields as diverse as literature and the arts, fashion and film, popular culture, the sciences and politics. Assembling selected papers from the 12th International Symposium of the German Society for English Romanticism, this volume is dedicated to the validity of Romanticism Today. It showcases how current cultural perspectives facilitate new readings of Romantic texts, as well as how readings of current cultural perspectives are inevitably confronted with the pervasive continuity of Romanticism.
