Teacher Tuesday

Don't forget to apply for the JASP2023 Teacher Scholarship program! Applications are open for our teacher scholarships to attend our annual four-day symposium June 15-18 in Chapel Hill, N.C.

Designed to appeal to an inclusive audience of Austen fans, welcoming scholars, middle and

high school educators, graduate and undergraduate students, and Austen enthusiasts alike, this year's program -- "Austen's Teenage Writings" -- will center on Austen’s juvenilia as well as the short novel Lady Susan. The verve and irreverence of Austen's juvenile writing can be a perfect gateway into an appreciation for her later work, help demystify "old" writing, and serve as an inspiration for young writers working on finding their voices. As always, JASP will take an interdisciplinary approach to our topic, with presenters from a variety of humanist fields, including literature, theatre, material history, and more.

As part of their mission to support teachers, JASP will offer a "Teacher's Forum" on Thursday and Friday, giving teachers an additional chance to discuss pedagogy and Jane Austen. In the forum, you'll have a chance to learn from practitioners in a variety of fields, as well as exchanging ideas with each other.

If you are interested in applying for a JASP teacher scholarship, please fill out the application online at The deadline to apply is Friday, April 7, and winners will be announced no later than Friday, April 21. We look forward to celebrating your professional commitment and love of literacy together!
