AN ANNUAL SYMPOSIUM FOR
ALL AUSTEN READERS
Jane Austen Summer Program
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.
The 2020 JASP program was rescheduled due to the pandemic. The 2021 Jane Austen Summer Program be presented in a virtual format and will center on Jane Austen’s letters and Claire Tomalin’s biography "Jane Austen: A Life."
