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 2021 Jane Austen Summer Program was presented in June in a virtual format and centered on Jane Austen’s letters and Claire Tomalin’s biography "Jane Austen: A Life." The 2022 program will be on Jane Austen & Shakespeare.
