|Recurring Event (See all)

Announcing the 2015 Jane Austen Summer Program, “Emma at 200!”
June 18-21, 2015 at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

This year’s 4-day residential symposium will focus on Austen’s Emma, in honor of the novel’s two-hundredth anniversary. Participants will have the opportunity to hear expert speakers and participate in discussion groups each day, as well as join in a Regency ball, partake in an English tea, and visit special exhibits tailored to the conference. The discussions will consider the novel in its historical context as well as its many afterlives in fiction and film. The Jane Austen Summer Program (JASP) is designed to appeal to established scholars, high school teachers, graduate students, and undergraduate students—anyone with a passion for all things Austen is welcome and encouraged to attend!
