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. 


Our next program -- June 16-19, 2022 -- will be on Jane Austen & Shakespeare. We will be reading
"Mansfield Park" and Shakespeare's "King Lear" and "All’s Well that
Ends Well."

Chapel Hill & Carrboro, North Carolina

Praise for JASP

“JASP is one of the highlights of my year.

“An excellently organized experience. Wonderful dance instruction (and the ball!), and I found the group discussions after each panel lively & enlightening. Excellent.”

“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.
