Holy Cross to co-sponsor 21st Annual North American Society for the Study of Romanticism Conference

College will be first liberal arts college to co-sponsor in conference history

August 6th, 2013 by 

The College of the Holy Cross and Boston University are this year’s North American Society for the Study of Romanticism (NASSR) conference co-sponsors. The event will draw hundreds of scholars from around the world for a series of lectures, debates, and seminars focused on the theme ‘Romantic Movements.’   Sessions will be held at Boston University’s Charles River Campus from August 8-12.

Notably, Holy Cross is the first liberal arts college ever to co-sponsor NASSR’s annual event. “NASSR is an indispensible organization for Romanticist scholars around the world, and Holy Cross co-sponsoring is a remarkable moment in the conference’s history,” said Jonathan Mulrooney, chair of the English department at Holy Cross and a NASSR 2013 co-organizer.  “It’s not just a question of contributing resources. Holy Cross’s role has already prompted new conversations in NASSR about the relationship between scholarship and the teaching of Romanticism, at a time when those conversations are needed.  The liberal arts dimension matters.”

Holy Cross faculty on the conference committee include Jeffrey Bernstein, associate professor of philosophy; Debra Gettelman, associate professor of English; Richard Matlak, professor of English; and Shawn Maurer, professor of English.
