Romantic Studies Association of Australasia (RSAA)

The Romantic Studies Association of Australasia (RSAA) was founded at the University of Sydney in 2010 to promote the study of the literary, artistic, political, and scientific culture of the ‘long’ Romantic period (c. 1750-1850) throughout universities, secondary schools, and the general community in Australia, New Zealand, and Asia.

Hosting a biennial conference and occasional public lectures, readings, colloquia, and workshops throughout the year, RSAA provides a forum for the discussion of global Romantic cultures, inviting a wide variety of theoretical approaches to Romantic cultural and intellectual works in all genres and disciplines, including literature and print culture, history, the pictorial arts, music, theatre, religion, philosophy, science, and political economy.
