This conference explores the fluid and unfamiliar contours of predisciplinarity/adisciplinarity in an expansive Romantic Century, 1750-1850. We envision this conference as an opportunity to defamiliarize foundational moments, master narratives, and key figures of the Romantic century, by opening them up to predisciplinary and eccentric objects, encounters, and texts.

Plenary Speakers: James Chandler (Chicago), Jonathan Lamb (Vanderbilt), Nicholas Thomas (Cambridge)

Romantic Disorder is convened by the Birkbeck Centre for 19th Century Studies and CILAVS in association with University of California, Riverside, with the support of the British Academy.
