Our 2018 program — “Northanger Abbey & Frankensten: 200 Years of Horror” — has concluded. Here is a recap of this year’s JASP.

Our 4-day symposium focuses on one of Austen’s works each summer. The Jane Austen Summer Program is designed to appeal to established scholars, high school teachers, graduate students, undergraduate students, and anyone with a passion for all things Austen.
