The Romantic Realignments Conference 2007 Romanticism and War, A two day conference to be held at the University of Oxford, 28-29 September 2007 - Call for papers
In the 15th and 16th centuries, many independent territories were annexed to the French realm. Yet, the political annexation of a territory did not necessary guarantee the automatic cultural and social assimilation of the people living there. An inevitable complication arose: how could one be both French and other at the same time? This panel will explore the relationships between regional and national identities in Early Modern France, and, specifically, how different authors negotiate between those identities.
