Welcome to the official website of the Joint Conference coming up in September 2019!

Welcome to the web-site for the international conference Transgressive Romanticism: Boundaries, Limits, Taboos which is being jointly organised by the International Association of Byron Societies (IABS) and the German Society for English Romanticism (GER).

The conference will be supported by
