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 Jane Austen’s works. Our 2022 theme is “Austen & Shakespeare.” We will be reading “Mansfield Park” as well as “All's Well That Ends Well” and “King Lear.”


Past programs have centered on “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).
