Posts Tagged ‘Music World of Jane Austen’

I decided to google Jane Austen’s World to see how many items of interest popped up (besides those featured on my blog, Jane Austen’s World, and my website, also entitled Jane Austen’s World.) Here are the links listed in no particular order:

  • The Los Angeles Times features an archived post entitled the Music World of Jane Austen, which is a review of a concert performed in 2007. The link also leads to Jane Austen Audio Guide at the University of Wisconsin – Madison, which is an independent learning course offered by Professor Emily Auerbach. The costs are quite reasonable!
  • jane-austen-regency-world-coverThe March/April 2009 issue of Jane Austen Regency World Magazine is now available. Topics in this issue include: Is This the Real Mrs. Bennet?, Chawton House Bicentenery, Amazing Wilberforce, For the Love of Jane: A survey of Janeites, Death in the Press: Obituaries in the Regency World, and a new series of insights about Jane by Maggie Lane. Bimonthly Bits of Ivory, a review of Jane Austen Regency World Magazine by Carrie Bebris for JASNA News sits on the Republic of Pemberley website.
  • Shedding Light on Jane Austen’s World is a 1998 review of Claire Tomalin’s book, Jane Austen: A life. One needs a trial prescription to HighBeam to read it, but what I found interesting was this link to the Center for Distance and Independent Study from the University of Missouri, which offers English Studies online, including those that will round out your knowledge of Jane Austen and the world she lived in. Two of the courses are named Studies in English (The Rise of Gothic Literature) and Major Authors 1789 – 1890 (Jane Austen Then and Now) with a preview of the course.

  • The World of Jane Austen describes a two-day walking tour in the Hampshire countryside. It is a little pricey at £230 per person, but this tour would give you a sense of what walking from place to place was like during Jane’s time. I intend to share this information with the Janeites on the James, my book group. We are all dying to see Jane Austen’s world now that we’ve been talking about it for nearly four years.
  • Last week the Smithsonian featured The Regency World of Jane Austen. Drat, I missed it. I shall have to keep a closer tab on their educational features, since the Institution is only a two-hour drive from my house. Did anyone from the Mid-Atlantic JASNA attend the day-long workshop? If you did, how was it?
  • Last but certainly not least, Jane Odiwe recently published a post entitled: What Was Happening in Jane Austen’s World in 1795? The last few winters that Jane experienced in her life were colder than normal, which inspired Jane Odiwe to paint one of her lovely watercolours of Jane walking in the snow with her sister Cassandra.
