Burke Austen Scholar-in-Residence Juliette Wells Lecture Available as Podcast


Juliette Wells, the Goucher College 2009-2010 Burke Jane Austen Scholar-in-Residence, gave a public lecture in February that is now available as a podcast. The talk, titled “For the Love of Jane Austen,” is about why ordinary readers, that is, non-academics, read Jane Austen, and is quite enjoyable; also appropriate, as Alberta Burke, the Goucher alumna who donated the Austen collection to Goucher’s library, was an enthusiastic, but non-professional, Janeite. The podcast can be downloaded for free from Goucher’s website. It’s not quite an hour long and definitely worth your time.
