Jane Austen Summer Program
Chapel Hill & Carrboro, North Carolina
Our award-winning 4-day symposium focuses on one of Austen’s works each summer.
The Jane Austen Summer Program (JASP) is designed to appeal to anyone with a passion for all things Austen. Attendees include people from all walks of life, as well as established scholars, high school teachers, and students from middle school through graduate school.
Our 2020 program was rescheduled to 2021 due to the pandemic. JASP 2021 will center on Jane Austen’s letters and Claire Tomalin’s biography "Jane Austen: A Life."
