This workshop invites participants to explore the language of the Romantic era in two different, yet closely related areas, i.e. stylistics and language-change. What is the balance between innovation and conservatism in the language and/or style of writers of the period (whether considered as individuals or social networks)? How - if at all - does their language-use relate to their ideology? Contributions addressing these and related questions will be welcome.
Reminder: Deadline for Papers: 28th February 2007
LMEC3 Workshop: ''Rebels or Reactionaries? Romantic Writers in the Vanguard / Rearguard of Contemporary Linguistic Change''
29 August 2007, University of Leiden
Literary scholarship of the past 20 years has argued that the Romantics were neither as homogeneous nor as innovative as previously perceived; in many cases they were reactionary compared to the Enlightenment writers and in some cases 'it was the classical... style that was... linked with republicanism' (Butler 1981:5). Whether this claim, which is based largely on writers' literary and political ideologies, is also true for their language-use remains largely untested.
