The Romanticist Research Group is a working group sponsored by the Department of English at New York University. We treat Romantic-era works as case studies for larger scholarly questions regarding the intersection of media, genre, and performance. Please email us at email@example.com for any comments or questions. We also invite you to participate on our blog and follow us!
