European Romantic Review

The Editors and Board of European Romantic Review are delighted to share with NASSR members our efforts to reduce the journal’s carbon imprint from 2024 onwards by adjusting our printing schedule. NASSR members can continue to rely upon the journal’s high standards and coverage, in terms of articles and book reviews available to NASSR members, but the journal will appear as a quarterly in recognition of the need to lessen the journal’s printing and mailing impacts. NASSR members will still receive the journal seamlessly as one feature of their membership in NASSR, and can expect the issues to appear in March, June, September, and December of 2024. Book reviews will appear in issue 1 (March) and the NASSR conference (issue 3, September). Members are invited to send their books for review to William Brewer.

The Frederick Burwick Article Prize (formerly called the ERR-NASSR Essay Prize) will continue to be awarded annually.

ERR is pleased to publish conference issues, developed from the annual NASSR conference, as well as special issues, such as recent ones dedicated to Robert Bloomfield and to Maria Edgeworth. We are also pleased to publish themed issues, such as Women and Protest. Enquiries about special issues should be directed to the co-editors.

In 2004, NASSR and European Romantic Review instituted an annual prize for the best essay published in European Romantic Review.  Each competition considers all of the essays published in that year's volume of ERR.
