In 2021, the Jane Austen Summer Program will present its multi-day symposium online, with a focus on Jane Austen’s letters and Claire Tomalin’s biography “Jane Austen: A Life.”
Registration is currently full. Join the waitlist here; we will contact those on the list if space becomes available.

Note: We are planning to record all sessions and will post them on a password-protected site soon after they conclude. Participants will be able to view the recordings for a limited time after JASP ends. For more questions answers, click on the FAQ button below.

Teachers: Registration is open for JASP+

In addition to our teacher-only sessions, JASP+ offers educators a chance to learn online tools to help teach Austen to students. Registration is required, and space is limited. JASP+ is open only to middle and high school teachers. You must already be registered for JASP to participate. 

Cost: $25.

Praise for JASP

“This was so amazing, even more so than I thought it would be. I can’t wait until next year!”

“JASP gets better every year … Worth every penny, and I can’t recommend it highly enough for anyone interested in Austen and her works.”

“I regularly teach Austen at the college level, and this program routinely sends me back to the classroom with more knowledge and more practical ways to make Austen live for my students...”

“The ball is ALWAYS wonderful and is something I look so forward to each year!”
