Autumn colours and cool weather surrounded the Université de Lille Pont de Bois campus for this second conference of The French Society for the Study of English Romanticism (the first being on Romanticism and Philosophy in 2012). Conference papers were presented in English, and delegates from around the globe attended, myself being the only delegate from the Southern Hemisphere. The conference was organised by the Université de Lille and the Université de Lorraine with the support of the Institut Université de France and SERA. While the main language spoken was English, the cuisine was French, which included a delightful spread each day for lunch and an even more delightful dinner on the second night at L’Assiette du Marché in Lille. Conversation was convivial and varied across three full days as some twenty-five speakers and the same again in attendees, including many local postgraduate students, explored the complex and creative relationship between Romanticism and time.
