In the first decade of this century the Keats-Shelley Memorial Association (American Committee) was organized in New York. Simultaneously, Committees were formed in Rome and England, with the joint purpose of purchasing and endowing the maintenance of the house in Rome, at 26 Piazza Di Spagna, where Keats had died in 1821.
The work of the Keats-Shelley Association of America continues, not only in the publication of the Keats-Shelley Journal but in its organizing of and support for such landmark events as the Keats Bicentennial Conference at Harvard University in 1995, and the Mary Shelley Bicentennial Conference in New York in 1997. The Association also presents an award each year to the best new essay on the younger Romantics, an annual Distinguished Scholar Award, and the Carl H. Pforzheimer, Jr., Research Grants. The KSAA has also devised a Mentoring Project to connect junior scholars in the crucial early stages of their careers with knowledgeable mentors.
