Course Description:

While Jane Austen is certainly an important and a famous author, she is much more than that: she is also an icon, an enduring cultural success story, and the center of a cult of personality. In this course, we will examine the work of Austen herself and the work that has been done with her life and her materials, from high culture to pop-culture. This course will be of interest to students pursuing concentrations in literature, cultural studies, women's studies, creative writing, and media studies, amongst others. Students interested in British literature, culture, or history, or students thinking of teaching English may also find this course of interest.

This series of courses offers advanced-level students the opportunity to study a variety of topics in literary studies. This course may be repeated for credit with different topics.
