Romantic Circles, a scholarly website published by the University of Maryland, is "devoted to the study of Romantic-period literature and culture." Originally featured in the Scout Report shortly after its inception in 1996, Romantic Circles continues to publish literary scholarship, teaching resources, and digitized Romantic-period texts and images. As explained in the About RC section (a good place to start for newcomers), these resources may be explored via eight main sections. In the Praxis Series section, readers will find engaging essays that highlight select subjects, historical figures, or theoretical approaches. For instance, of the two issues published in December 2016, one centered on German Romanticism while the other explored English Romanticism in East Asia. Romantic Circles also offers Pedagogies, collections of essays dedicated to teaching the Romantics. The most recent collection features six essays, authored by American and Canadian academics, on the topic of Teaching Romanticism and Literary Theory. The Electronic Editions (under the Editions tabs) are another great resource. Here visitors will find a rich assortment of digitized items, from William Wordsmith's A Guide through the District of the Lakes in the North of England to the collected letters of poet Robert Southey.
