Jane Austen at Washington and Lee

Lucky Washington and Lee alumni have an opportunity this July to sign up for a full week of Jane Austen immersion in the beautiful setting of Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains.The World of Jane Austen: A Truth Universally Acknowledged - And Stuff is scheduled for July 19-24, 2009.

In this Alumni College program, Marc Conner and Theresa Braunschneider from the English department, Pam Simpson from art history, and Taylor Sanders from history will focus on two of Austen's greatest novels, Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice, along with an investigation into the history and culture of her period. They'll also discuss several recent film versions of her work, all in an effort to appreciate the writer who has so brilliantly described, in the narrow space of her six novels, the range and depth of the English character.
