Postponement of our 2021 conference

Given the uncertainties about the further development of the corona crisis, the GER conference scheduled to take place in Augsburg in October 2021 has been postponed to 2022. It did not seem a good idea to risk reducing our conference to a merely digital format and to do without the attractions Augsburg has to offer. We have therefore decided not to have the conference in 2021, but have tentatively rescheduled it for September 29 - October 2, 2022, very much hoping and expecting that that will be a safer date and that we can all meet in person again then.


In the podcast series "Was mir Hölderlin bedeutet: Annäherungen und Anklänge", Christoph Bode speaks about Hölderlin's "Das Angenehme dieser Welt hab' ich genossen".

After the enormously successful joint conference with the IABS in Vechta in September 2019, the next conference of the German Society for English Romanticism will take place in Augsburg from October 4 October 7, 2021. The conference theme will be "Romantic Ecologies" - understood very broadly,

including metaphorical conceptions of ecology. A call for papers will be issued in due course. The conference is to take place at the Tagungshaus St. Ulrich (http://www.haus-st-ulrich.de), where participants will also be staying.

-> PLEASE NOTE THAT THE CONFERENCE HAS BEEN POSTPONED (SEE NEWS SECTION FOR FURTHER DETAILS).
