Abstract proposals are sought for submission as a proposed special issue to TEXT journal which will explore Romanticism’s legacy for the study and practice of writing, its influences, inspirations, tyrannies and resistances. In the context of creative writing’s establishment as an academic discipline and the advent of digital media as the platform for new writing, this collection offers an opportunity from which to consider Romanticism’s legacies and possibilities for new, post-Romanticist discourses to emerge.
Abstracts are due November 15. For more information and how to submit, see the Call for Papers
