A colloquium entitled “Romantic Spaces, Romantic Imaginations” will take place on Thursday, October 30, 2008, from 2:00-6:00 p.m., in the Reading Room of Levis Faculty Center on the campus of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Four speakers will explore the extent to which our spaces and imaginations today—political, theoretical, social, technological—are still “Romantic.” Romanticism is a movement with both “regressive” and “progressive” aspects: its proponents often embraced a philosophy of self-liberation and creativity, but sometimes simultaneously an ideology of political and religious totality. Romantics have been blamed for the fascist aesthetics of the Third Reich, and credited with inspiring the Beat generation and the protest cultures of the 1960s. The recent publication of Rüdiger Safranski’s book Romantik. Eine deutsche Affäre (2007) re-ignited a passionate debate in Germany about the specifically German attributes of Romanticism and about the relationship between cultural and political movements from 1800 to today.
Speakers include Azade Seyhan (Bryn Mawr), Jörn Steigerwald (Freie Universität Berlin), Brad Prager (University of Missouri), and Carsten Strathausen (University of Missouri). The event is sponsored by the Center for Advanced Study, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, the Unit for Criticism and Interpretive Theory, the Department of Philosophy, and the Department of Germanic Languages and Literatures, among other units and programs. It is free and open to the public. For more information and a complete program please see
