Organized by the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill's Department of English and Comparative Literature in conjunction with the Program in the Humanities, this four-day summer program celebrates the 200th anniversary of the publication of Pride and Prejudice.
Learning experiences include lecture formats and discussion groups daily. Discussions will focus on Pride and Prejudice in its historical context as well as its many afterlives in fiction and film.
Additional events include a Regency ball, the chance to partake in an English tea, a silent auction of Austen-related items, and the opportunity to view special exhibits tailored to the conference.
The Austen Summer Program 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 to attend!
