National Endowment for the Humanities Seminar This Summer: "Jane Austen and Her Contemporaries"

In June 2012, the National Endowment for the Humanities will sponsor a seminar, "Jane Austen and Her Contemporaries," at the University of Missouri in Columbia, MO.   This seminar is one in which sixteen participants will seek significant new insights about Jane Austen by reading her works closely alongside  works of now understudied (but well-known) writers of her own day. This program is designed primarily for those who teach American undergraduate students, although qualified independent scholars are also eligible to apply.

The seminar is scheduled from June 18-July 20, 2012; deadline for applications is March 1, 2012.
