On behalf of the Executive Director, the Advisory Board, and myself, I welcome you to the ICR website. Whether you are already an ICR member or are visiting the website for the first time, we encourage your participation in the 2018 meeting that will be hosted by Clemson University in Greenville, SC. The call for papers is posted on our homepage. In the meantime, you can stay informed of current research in Romanticism studies by consulting Essays in Romanticism (EiR), the official journal of the ICR. If you are not yet a member, we invite you to join, and in so doing support the scholarly activities of this uniquely interdisciplinary and cross-linguistic society. Plus, all new ICR members receive the journal as part of their first membership package!

If you are on Facebook, please look for our page there. We hope to see you at the 2018 meeting in South Carolina!

Jennifer Davis Michael, ICR President
