This event has finished Took place on: Tuesday, 18th Sep 2018

The historian Isaiah Berlin described the Romanticism of the late 18th and early 19th centuries as 'the greatest single shift in the consciousness of the West that has occurred'. What is the justification for this claim, what do we mean by 'Romanticism' and when did it begin?
