About this Volume

The Romantic era witnessed broad experimentation with and theorization of education at all levels, from efforts to make education available to child laborers to ideas about the role of nature in learning. Our own period is experiencing similarly intense debates about the best means of educating students in a rapidly expanding world. Romantic Education: Romantic Pedagogies and New Approaches to Teaching Romanticism theorizes Romantic-era theories and practices of teaching and learning, as well as pedagogical approaches to the teaching of Romanticism in the modern classroom.

About the Design and Markup

This volume was designed and encoded at the University of Maryland by Kyle Bickoff and Dave Rettenmaier, Site Managers at Romantic Circles. The initial transformation from WORD Doc to TEI P5 was made using the OxGarage tool, with further TEI markup modifications according to RC house style. TEI renders text in archival quality for better preservation and future access. Laura Mandell and Dave Rettenmaier developed the modified versions of the XSLT transforms provided by the TEI that were used to convert the TEI files into HTML.
