The 2015 Wordsworth Summer Conference at elegant Rydal Hall will be the 44th since Richard Wordsworth’s inaugural conference gathering in 1970. This year we continue the format pioneered by Richard, mingling lectures, papers and lively academic debate with energetic fell walking, picturesque rambles, and excursions to places of Wordsworthian and Romantic interest. Upper and Lower Rydal Falls are within the grounds of the Hall, and Rydal Mount - Wordsworth’s home from 1813 until 1850 - is a two-minute walk away. In the evenings participant relax in the bar at Rydal Hall, wander in the terraced garden, or stroll down to Rydal water for a moonlight swim … 

By courtesy of the Wordsworth Trust, our opening night will include a reception in the Wordsworth Museum followed by a candle light visit to Dove Cottage. There will be an opportunity to explore the treasures of the Wordsworth Trust’s collections with the curator Jeff Cowton, and to visit the summer exhibition ‘Wordsworth, War, and Waterloo’. Our excursions are likely to be to Scott’s Abbotsford and Dryburgh Abbey, Cockermouth, Furness Abbey, historic Naworth Castle dating from the 14c, and Romantic Levens Hall with its Iron Duke memorabilia and Beau Brummel’s snuffbox. The Solway riviera may be included by popular request. High points for energetic fell walkers will be ascents of the Grizedale Round, or maybe the Buttermere fells; Pavey Ark & the Langdale Pikes, and Blencathra by Hall’s Fell.
Format and Costs: The 2015 Summer Conference is in two parts of 4 full days each, with a changeover day on Saturday 8 August. The registration fee, which includes up to seven excursions, is the same as last year – all charges have been held at 2014 levels. This offers exceptional value at £240 for ten days (£190 for five days). Full Board at Rydal Hall is available at prices ranging from £600 to £880 (for ten nights), and at the adjacent Youth Centre from £450 (for ten nights). All participants will take all meals at Rydal Hall.  

Non-resident registration: £90 per day, £360 for one part, £640 both parts (inclusive of lunch, dinner, excursions, receptions).

Bursaries for the 2015 Wordsworth Summer Conference

Ten bursaries of £350 are available for the 2015 conference. These bursaries are intended to enable young scholars, principally at postgraduate and early post-doctoral level, to enjoy ten active and stimulating days in the unique environment of Rydal and Grasmere, for about half the cost of the event. Please bring this announcement to the attention of qualifying applicants. 

5 Richard Wordsworth Bursaries £350 for Postgraduate or Postdoctoral applicants working in English or Anglo-American Romanticism 

5 Ena Wordsworth Bursaries £350 for students working on Wordsworth or in the Field of English Romanticism 

Terms and Conditions: Bursaries are intended to meet approximately half of the cost of attending the conference. Holders of bursaries will be so designated on the list of participants or the conference programme. The bursary will be applied in the first instance to conference fees, and the balance to accommodation in the new Rydal Hall Youth Centre, making the total cost of the conference, to a bursar, either £340 (5 person dormitory) or £390 (2 person dormitory) for the full ten-day conference programme and ten nights’ full board. Bursars are expected to attend all lectures, papers and conference events, and acceptance of a bursary implies an undertaking to do so. 

 

Your application should be in the form of a Word attachment (not pdf) containing a paper proposal of 300 words, together with a short unformatted c.v. in the same file, the entire application being not more than two sides of A4 (the file will be copied and pasted into a composite file, so please avoid elaborate formatting). Applicants should also arrange for one academic reference to be sent independently to the same email address, verifying the applicant’s status and country of residence. Candidates need not specify which bursary they are applying for. They will automatically be considered for any bursary for which they are eligible.

Please note that we may award a bursary but without having space to include the proposed paper on the conference programme: such papers may, however, be ‘taken as read’, that is, made available in print form at the conference, if the proposer so chooses.  Papers should be not longer than 2750 words (rapid delivery invariably impedes communication) and may address any area of Romanticism. 

Bursary applications and references should be submitted by 15 April 2015 to [log in to unmask]
