Join us at JASP

JASP is a four-day symposium exploring Jane Austen through lectures, workshops, small-group discussions and other activities. Each year we focus on one of Austen’s works. Our 2023 theme is Austen's teenage writings.


Past programs have centered on Jane Austen ("Mansfield Park") and Shakespeared ("King Lear" and "All's Well That Ends Well"), “Pride and Prejudice” (2013 & 2019), “Sense and Sensibility” (2014), “Emma” (2015), “Mansfield Park” (2016), “Persuasion” (2017), “Northanger Abbey” and Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein” (2018), and “Jane Austen’s World," with a focus on Austen’s letters and Claire Tomalin’s biography “Jane Austen: A Life.” (2020/2021).
