Inter-university Centre for the Study of Romanticism

Parma Branch

The Inter-university Centre for the Study of Romanticism (CISR) organises and promotes study and research activities centred on the pivotal importance of the Romantic Period in various European cultures. With an interdisciplinary perspective, the Centre’s academics deal with all the events which precede and introduce the Romantic climate, the elements which the Romantic generations retrieved and reinvented, not to mention the subsequent effects of the Romantic culture in Europe and its traces and influences in non-European cultural fields.

The branch of the University of Parma, established after the affiliation of a group of academics in the former Department of Foreign Languages and Literature (that later merged with the Department of Classical Studies, Modern Languages, Education and Philosophy - A.L.E.F.) consists of professors of various disciplines associated with the Department of Humanities, Social Sciences and Cultural Industries, as well as external members. Due to the strength of this interdisciplinary configuration, the Centre presents itself as reference point for extensive study and research, also with the intention of its application in didactic activity, in nineteenth-century culture as ‘transit area’ and crucial turning point between the eighteenth-century (re)inventions of modernity and the revolutionary transformations of the twentieth century and the present day.
