Session Description:

As transatlantic has emerged as an operative adjective in academic discourse, Romanticism has surfaced as a site of contestation, exchange, and innovation. This roundtable will position Romanticism as a set of cultural productions created through the roots and routes of Atlantic slavery as a way to focus a broader conversation about current academic trends, methodologies, and opportunities.
