A conference will be held 12-14 July 1989, at the University of Melbourne on “Romanticism and Imagination.” A number of keynote speakers are expected. Papers are welcome on all aspects of this theme, from disciplines such as philosophy and history as well as literary theory and literary criticism. Topics of possible interest include: the imagination of particular writers, artists, musicians and architects; imagination and class, gender, or popular culture; the imagination from a historical, political, or philosophical point of view; the nature of the imagination and the way in which it produces, figures, or is itself a product of the real. The organizers would also be interested in papers which discuss the fate of the romantic imagination in Australia.

The organizers point out that at present romantic studies lacks a forum in Australia: there is no conference, journal, or association which has this cultural field as its central concern. The conference will fill the first of these gaps.
