For its 2012 conference, the International Conference on Romanticism returns to the Sonoran Desert and will be held on the campus of Arizona State University in its Memorial Union, the site for the 2006 conference. Mark Lussier and Ron Broglio, the conference organizers, have adopted the theme of “catastrophes,” which should be interpreted in its broadest possible context, including aesthetic, colonial, dramatic, ecological, economic, geographic, literary, military, and political catastrophes. Other approaches are equally welcome. 

We hope you will join us in November 2012.
