Romantic Circles was officially launched in November 1996 and has been from the start a profoundly collaborative project. Below we record the names of those who have played important roles in its development over the years.

Until 2018, Romantic Circles was published by the University of Maryland, College Park. It is now published by the University of Colorado, Boulder.
