A Special Session on Romanticism
as part of the 17th Annual International Conference on Literature
3-6 June 2024, Athens, Greece

ATINER is organizing a Special Session on Romanticism as part of the 17th Annual International Conference on Literature, 3-6 June 2024, Athens, Greece sponsored by the Athens Journal of Philology

The session on Romanticism will take place within the larger ATINER Literature Conference. Our hope is to create an international discussion on current topics, approaches, and theories related to the study of literary, historical, philosophical, and political Romanticism. Our call for papers is thus broad: we encourage proposals on any aspect of literary Romanticism, including comparative studies, national Romanticisms, trans-Atlantic, papers on single authors or texts, as well as papers that reflect current trends in Romantic studies, i.e., Romanticism and gender studies, new materialism, posthuman, etc.

You may participate as a presenter of one paper and/or an attendee. Selected papers will be considered for publication in the Athens Journal of Philology after a double blind peer review process. The ejournal is open access and no fee is required.

Please submit an abstract (by email only) to:, using the abstract submission form by 31 October 2023 to: Dr. William Davis, Deputy Head, Literature Unit, ATINER & Professor, The Colorado College, USA. Abstracts should include the following details: Title of Paper, Full Name (s), Affiliation, Current Position, an email address, and at least 3 keywords that best describe the subject of your submission. Decisions are reached within 4 weeks.

Fee structure information is available on

Special arrangements will be made with a local hotel for a limited number of rooms at a special conference rate. In addition, a number of special events will be organized which give a great opportunity to further discuss the issues presented at the conference. From ATINER’s long experience these events bring together scholars from different countries and disciplines which may result to research collaborations and joint publications. These events include a pragmatic symposium (as organized in Ancient Athens but fine-tuned to synchronous ethics), a special one-day educational island tour, a Mycenae and island of Poros visit, an Athens educational walking tour, a day trip to Delphi, and an ancient Corinth and Cape Sounion visit. Details of the social program are available here.
