The French Society for the Study of British Romanticism (SERA – Société d’Etudes du Romantisme Anglais), an academic society created in 2009, continues the tradition of the “Centre du Romantisme anglais”. Its aim is to promote trans-disciplinary approaches in the Romantic period, ranging from the history of ideas to philosophy, aesthetics, music, literature, and human sciences.
The executive committee includes Prof Caroline Bertonèche (Université Grenoble Alpes, President), Prof Christian La Cassagnère (Emeritus, Université de Lyon II, Honorary President), Prof Jean-Marie Fournier (Université Paris 7, Honorary President), Prof Marc Porée (ENS, Vice President), Prof Denis Bonnecase (Université Grenoble Alpes, Vice President), Dr Sophie Laniel-Musitelli (Université de Lille, Secretary), Dr Céline Sabiron (Université de Lorraine, Vice Secretary), and Dr Sébastien Scarpa (Université Grenoble Alpes, Treasurer).
The SERA regularly sponsors international and day conferences around the country, and organizes workshops and panel sessions during the annual SAES symposium, to showcase the work of French academics and postgraduates in the field of Romantic studies.
The “Romanticism and Time” Conference illustrates the SERA’s ambition to promote the cross-cultural study of Romanticism and to strengthen its ties with other Romantic associations around the world.
