Picture 63Jane Austen Mendota Poster

We invite alumni and friends to join us, on October 23-24, for a weekend celebrating 200 years of Jane Austen. We will attend a film screening, enjoy faculty lectures, and explore Jane Austen’s world through interdisciplinary workshops in dance, costume and archival work. We welcome alumni back to our department, and we welcome newcomers to see what our department has to offer.

Highlights of the event include a Friday evening film screening, and lectures by members of the English Department:

Emily Auerbach, Searching for Jane Austen

Susan Bernstein, Austen’s Places

Theresa Kelley, The Game of Speculation:  Plotting Marriage (or Not)

Caroline Levine, Close Reading Austen
