Rix [rix@cgs.aau.dk]Editorial SecretaryKasper Rueskov GuldbergSubscription servicesAarhus University Press [unipress@au.dk]The cover illustration is Scene from the Era of Norwegian Sagas (1850), a painting by theNorwegian artist Knud Baade (1808-1879). The depiction of the lonely Viking by the seareflects the artist’s interest in Norse themes. It also demonstrates how he combined suchsubject matters with one of his other favourite genres, the Romantic moonlit landscape.This was a genre Baade knew well from Dresden, where he belonged to the circle of GermanRomantics that included Caspar David Friedrich and the Norwegian painter JohanChristian Dahl, who for a period was Baade’s teacher. Later, Baade settled in Munich,where his work became quite popular. In 1851, King Ludwig I purchased one of his works,Phantasibild aus der norwegischen Sagazeit, for the collection of the Neue Pinakothek. Thisis very likely identical with the painting illustrated on this cover. It was sold in 1918, andwas rediscovered in the collection of Mr. Asbjørn Lunde of New York only a few yearsago. The history of the painting may be said to reflect the reception history of Romanticideals: thrown out at the beginning of Modernism, neglected during large parts of the20th century, only to be appreciated again in our time – as in the periodical Romantik.(Knut Ljøgodt)This page is protected by copyright and may not be redistributed

Welcometo Romant◄ CONTENTOn behalf of the Nordic Association for Romantic Studies, we are delighted toannounce the publication of the inaugural issue of Romantik: Journal for the Studyof Romanticisms.The journal is a natural outgrowth of a series of papers that the Associationhas published since 1996. This series consisted of contributions from a numberof renowned Scandinavian and international scholars. We felt that a peerreviewedjournal would be the ideal vehicle to take the success of these papers astep further.Romantik is a multi-disciplinary journal dedicated to the study of both thecultural productions and the concept of Romanticism. The articles range overa variety of cultural practices from the period (c. 1780–1860), including the writtenword, visual arts, history, philosophy, religion and theatre. The journal isinterested in the plurality of European romanticisms, as well as the connectionsbetween them.We aim to publish articles of relevance to both a Nordic and an internationalcommunity. When accepting articles for the journal, we focus on the innovativenessand presentation of the material, and we aim to publish articles only of thehighest academic quality.Romantik is published once a year. There will be special issues on differentthemes of current critical interest. Each issue contains a review section, in whichwe draw special attention to works published in the Nordic countries, as well asexhibitions with relevance to Romanticism.The journal is published first as a printed edition and will then be availableas an open access source after a one-year embargo period; we hope that this willincrease the research impact of the articles.This issue contains articles that cover a broad range of disciplines, utilizinga wide range of methodological approaches. But, in stimulatingly diverse ways,they all address the connection between Romanticism and politics, which is areflection of the call for papers that was sent out over a year ago. It is a particularpleasure to publish some of the cutting-edge research that is carried out amongScandinavian and German scholars, some of whom have had their articles translated.This page is protected by copyright and may not be redistributed
