Romanticism at SU emerged from a Spring 2019 course on the Art of Romanticism (HOA 458) taught at Syracuse University by professor Romita Ray in the department of Art and Music Histories. The fourteen students enrolled in the course wrote about fourteen objects in the Syracuse University Art Galleries and the Special Collections Research Center. Romanticism at SU is a collection of those stories. While students contextualized the objects within the broader themes of Romanticism, they also thought about how the stories they had chosen to write about might still be relevant today. Some stories are deeply personal, others are more critical and anchored by the history of art. But all of them stem from a deep desire to respond to works of art that the students had encountered for the first time.
