I’m currently writing up my thesis on the collaborative literary relationship of Percy Bysshe and Mary Shelley. I hope I will have time to produce more blogs soon (including another travel post comparing my experiences of Geneva and Chamonix to the travels of PBS and MWS!). In the meantime, here are some things of notice:
- Graham Henderson‘s blog
Graham’s passion for PBS is incredibly exciting and engaging, and he has kindly reposted some of my work on his Shelley website. I thoroughly recommend checking out his blog, especially his post on the hotel register at Chamonix, an iconic Shelley document that I know he has now had first-hand experience of viewing in Cambridge. You can also join the discussion on his Shelley Facebook page, and follow him on Twitter.
- Chawton House event
If you missed the Frankenstein bicentenary events in York and Rome earlier this year, you have one more chance to join us in celebrating 200 yrs since the composition of Mary Shelley’s ‘hideous progeny’. Dr. David Higgins and I will reprise the event at Chawton House Library on 24 November. Tickets and more details here.
- The Shelley Conference 2017
The CfP is open until April next year for this one-day conference on the works of Percy and Mary Shelley. The event will take place in London on 15th September 2017. Follow us on Twitter for updates, and direct any enquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org
- ‘On This Day’ BARS blog series
I curate this blog series for the British Association for Romantic Studies (BARS). The series celebrates the bicentenaries of literary/historical events in 1816 (and we have an archive of blogs celebrating 1815, too). Please enjoy the most recent posts here.
- BARS International Conference CfP
In July 2017, the BARS International Conference will be held at my very own University of York. The CfP is open until December 18th 2016. Details here.
For further international notices of events celebrating 200yrs since the Romantic Period, see the excellent page ‘Romantic Bicentennials‘.
- British Romantic Writing and Environmental Catastrophe
Have a look at the website and Twitter for this new AHRC-funded project at the University of Leeds, which includes ‘Romantic Climates’ blog posts.
