Emma Newport is running a three week summer course at King’s College London, exploring Austen’s England as well as her place in the literary pantheon. It is open to all who wish to study Austen in an academic environment at a Russell Group university in England.
Studying Austen in London gives students access to an extensive range of original resources held at the British Museum, the National Portrait Gallery and others. The course will include visits to a range of locations with cultural and historical relevance to Austen, including trips to Bath and Alton and a guided walk tracing Regency London. Throughout the course, there will be film screenings of all six major novels when we will examine in depth Austen’s heroes and villains and the England in which they lived.
