Description: Romanticism is a historical period and an idea that has shaped our contemporary world. This course examines three core concepts of Romanticism: ruins, race, and revolution. By looking at texts (novels, poems, philosophy, history) and visual art (paintings, film) from the eighteenth century until today students will examine how ruins, race, and revolutions were central to the formation of what we consider key concepts in our lives, such as love, longing, beauty, justice, and equality.
