The 1790s in Germany, Britain and France: Revolution, Liberation, and Excess

Wednesday, 22 - Friday, 24 April 2009

A Conference at the Institute of Germanic & Romance Studies, University of London

Call for Papers

This conference aims to provide a platform for an interdisciplinary and
comparative investigation into the intellectual, literary and
historio-political shifts that took place during this period
(1789-1805), which was one of the most fertile periods of Central and
Western European cultural activity, not least because of the
destabilising impact of the French Revolution. The conference intends to
highlight the interconnections between culture, politics and ideas with
the aim of establishing a more complete picture of this decade of
paradigm shifts, whose impact reverberated through the 19th and 20th
centuries. Areas of investigation may include:

- Enlightenment and Romanticism: Literature
- Enlightenment and Romanticism: Philosophy and Politics
- The French Revolution and its Impact on Literature, Politics and Cultural Theory
- Radicalism in Literature, Aesthetics and Politics
- The (Role of the) Excessive/Libertinism in Literature, Aesthetics and Politics
- The Origins of Feminism and Human and Civil Rights
- Conservative Reactions to Revolution, Liberation and Libertinism
- The Reception of German Ideas/Writers (in this context) in Britain and/or France
- The Reception of French Ideas/Writers in Germany and/or Britain
- The Reception of British Ideas/Writers in France and/or Germany
