Humanities Institute Lecture Series: Global Romanticisms: Alan Bewell
Start Date: 3/26/2014Start Time: 4:00 PM
End Date: 3/26/2014

Event Description:
Romanticism is a canonical and Eurocentric topic among literary, art history and music scholars, a more marginal one in the fields of history, sociology, and global studies. Yet the period with which Romanticism is associated—roughly that between 1770 and 1840—was one in which Europe’s relationship with the rest of the globe was dramatically and fundamentally changed. The cluster of ideas, practices and artifacts with which Romanticism is associated are saturated with the experience and imagination of a range of ‘others’ across the globe, from the Americas to the South Pacific, from India to Persia, and from China to Persia and the penal colony of New South Wales. This lecture series will address these geographically and culturally diverse manifestations of the romanticism born of revolution and war from the third quarter of the eighteenth through the mid-nineteenth centuries.
