November Austen conferences in England and Australia


Alert Janeite Sarah sent us a link to a conference on “Jane Austen and Endings” sponsored by the Institute of English Studies and the Jane Austen Society on Saturday, 17 November, 2007, at the University of London. The speakers include Elizabeth Eger, David Selwyn, Ashley Tauchert and Emma Clery, who “will investigate Jane Austen’s often ambiguous and knowing endings.” The registration fee is £30, £20; for members of the Institute or the Society.

A conference on “Jane Austen and Comedy” will be held on 29-30 November at LaTrobe University, Melbourne, Australia. The speakers include Germaine Greer, John Wiltshire, Jon Spence, Susannah Fullerton, and many more. There are several registration options to fit all budgets.
