both 2025 and 2026. Stay tuned for Austen's big birthday bash in 2025.

Praise for JASP

“The work of the Jane Austen Summer Program and Jane Austen & Co. is phenomenal. ... Everything they do is invaluable to Austen studies and fans.

“Love everything about JASP - the welcoming atmosphere, the rich variety of experiences (literature, film, material culture), the generosity and competence of those involved.”

“It’s a fabulous opportunity. The biggest strength is the focus on Jane Austen and the diversity of views and topics covered.”

“I have already told most of my friends to mark their calendars for next year.
