“Romantic Commons” aims at exploring the major crossroads and the less-trodden bypaths, the salient prospects and the outlying precincts, of British Romanticism. Through a reconsideration of the movement’s literary, cultural and aesthetic commonalities, as well as its sites of conflict, this seminar seeks to bring together approaches which venture across temporal and disciplinary boundaries, wander beyond the beaten paths, and make forays into the changing cultural and critical landscape. Resonant on a number of planes, the notion of the “commons” – of common places and spaces, as well as of commonplaces  – is intended not only to invite fresh reflection on Romantic-period texts and their ever-expanding (and “thickening”) contexts, but also to serve as an image for the spirit of unenclosed, collaborative thinking this seminar hopes to foster. Doctoral students of all disciplines (not only Romanticists) are encouraged to participate. For proposals for papers, ideas for future sessions, or more information, please contact us at
