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.
