>Special Session at the 2005 MMLA Convention (Milwaukee, WI)
>
>Traditionally, the Romantic period has been defined by attempts to
>transcend loss and to ground experience or identity in the recovery of
>individual and cultural memories.  This session will discuss the ways in
>which particular Romantic-era texts appear to engage in theoretical
>concerns that are more usually associated with various modernisms,
>exploring representations of trauma, exile, the abject, loss and
>forgetfulness during the early nineteenth century that resist, critique
>or disable the possibility of recuperative gestures, or that open
>towards more radical notions of futurity.  Areas of inquiry may include,
>but are not limited to, the historical novel, painting, music, narrative
>or lyric poetry, drama, and theoretical or critical texts.
