The Conference

A one-day postgraduate symposium @ Edge Hill University, 25th November 2017

Just in time to celebrate the 200th anniversary of S. T. Coleridge’s Biographia Literaria, this one-day symposium, co-organised by Edge Hill and Keele Universities, asks: what kind of value is placed on auto/biographical writings of the Romantic period? How does life writing in the Romantic period engage with philosophical, theological and literary critical theories? What would Romantic writers have to say now, if given the chance?

Keynote Speaker:

Dr. Felicity James – Leicester University, Lecturer in Eighteenth and Nineteenth Century Literature

There is an opportunity for selected papers from the symposium to be resubmitted for publication.
