Jane Austen Links Roundup

There's never any shortage of Austen news, and we've got a roundup for you.


Vox has a fun read on "Northanger Abbey," perhaps one of Austen's funniest novels.


Next month will see the return of "Sanditon," the series based on Austen's last, incomplete novel. Current.org reports it will feel more "classically Jane Austen."


Fancy something more realistic? NBC's reality show inspired by "Pride and Prejudice", named The Courtship, will also start airing in March.


It's likely that you're already a Janeite, but if you're trying to get friends and family into her work, then this guide might be useful.


Not to leave out the bard: this year's Shakespeare in the Park in New York will see "The Walking Dead" star Danai Gurira play "Richard III."


The latest version of "West Side Story," directed by Steven Spielberg, nabbed seven Oscar nominations. Collider compares the musical to its source material.


Another one from Collider: TV shows that have their roots in Shakespeare's works, though they may not be direct adaptations.

Scholarships for K-12 teachers

If you're a K-12 teacher in North Carolina, watch this space for information on how to apply for our teacher scholarships. Since its inception, JASP has awarded 28 teachers — representing 19 counties across the state — free admission and more than 20 other teachers discounted admission. Read more about past scholars here.


Don't forget about workshops!

On our registration site, you can also sign up for our sewing and creative writing workshops (you must be registered for JASP to attend). We are offering two sessions of each workshop at varying times. (Here's our tentative schedule.) These workshops require an additional fee, are limited in size and require advance reservations.


Hotel news

The block of rooms at the Hampton Inn has sold out (already!), but there are still rooms available at the hotel. Our conference venue is centrally located in Carrboro, a short walk from a number of restaurants and shops.
