Orrin Wang recently presented a paper on Percy Bysshe Shelley's Prometheus Unbound and Commemorative Thought and one on the Gothic Zany at the North American Society for the Study of Romanticism's annual conference in Berkeley; he'll be traveling this October to Vanderbilt to deliver a talk on the threat of mimesis in Austen, Byron, and Mary Shelley.  He'll also be giving a paper at the January Modern Language Association annual Convention on Derrida and the Prosthetic of the Inside.  All these talks are part of a book project on Romanticism and media, with the Prometheus Unbound piece a first stab at thinking about queer theory in relation to the idea of theory as future theory.  Another part of the project, on Wordsworth's poem "Michael" and Robert Smithson's land art, is forthcoming from ELN.
