This third issue of "Romantik: Journal for the Study of Romanticisms" contains a theme section: "Renegotiations of romanticism". This special theme brings together various examinations of the ways in which romanticism continues to play an important role in a post-romantic age. The reason for inviting contributions examining the afterlife of romanticism in national and international settings is to explore how we may understand it as not just a past event or artistic movement, but as an ongoing process of cultural development. The contributions provide new insights into post-romantic art -- both from the perspective of the artists and in terms of how their works were received. In addition to the articles featured in the theme section, this issue also contains contributions that shed new light on both canonical and lesser-known works from the romantic period -- including analyses of poetry, novels, and travelogues. As in previous issues, Romantik is richly illustrated. With contributions by Mitchell B Frank, Karin Sanders, Silje Svare, Sigrun Asebo, Anne Gry Haugland, Klaus Muller-Wille, Elisa Muller-Adams, Jennifer Wawrzinek and Per-Arne Bodin.
A part of the journal Romantik: Journal for the Study of Romanticisms. This inaugural issue of Romantik: Journal for the Study of Romanticisms contains seven articles that explore the connection between Romanticism and the political sphere. This topic has long been in need of redefinition. By gathering work from across disciplines with an interdisciplinary or cross-cultural scope, the topic is opened up to new perspectives of investigation. The articles in this first issue present new and exciting analyses of such diverse discourses as mythology, the fairy tale, historiography, elite culture, landscape painting, sculpture and dreaming.
The articles in this second issue of "Romantik" demonstrate the crucial role of emergent regionalism and nationalism within the Romantic movement. But, the contributors also explore how the transmission of ideas and inspiration took place across national as well as linguistic boundaries, and how knowledge was transferred from one domain of knowledge to another. The articles provide a new map of such cultural exchanges in the Romantic era and the multiplicity of agencies that made them possible. "Romantik" continues to place the plurality of European Romanticisms within a comprehensive and multi-lingual context.
In Roman religion, Terminus was an agrarian god who protected boundary markers. Stones were often used to provide an effective means for marking these boundaries, although a stump or a tree sometimes served to demarcate adjacent properties. The need to demarcate boundaries and define ends continues to shape our way of thinking at the most fundamental level. The articles in this book investigate, among other things, developments in literature, film, historiography, and new digital entertainment, to see how they reflect cultural anxieties about 'the end' and/or how they are determined by the need to mark boundaries. The contributions are organized so that they reflect thematic, national, and chronological perspectives. But, they also show that it is possible to identify several threads of continuity in the way that 'the end' has been conceptualized. By examining ideas of culmination, conclusion, closure, finale, and termination - from the perspective of a number of various genres, cultural formations, and historical contexts - these essays on 'terminus' show how endings are carriers of meaning in social and cultural contexts.

The articles in this number of Romantik include new research on reverie and dream as the locus of metaphor in Percy Bysshe Shelley's Prometheus Unbound; an enquiry into the Royal Swedish Society for the Publication of Manuscripts Relating to Scandinavian History and the role it played in the construction of national memory and heritage; a discussion of Philippe Jacques de Loutherbourg's and John Martin's iconographies of the sublime in the intersection between art and popular visual spectacle; archival discoveries related to the publication of medieval romance in early nineteenth-century Britain; and a reassessment of The Prelude as a formation narrative, arguing that William Wordsworth displays a conflicted attitude to the growth and progress usually found in the Bildungsroman. The journal also contains reviews of new books on the romantic period published in the Nordic countries.
