Jane Austen in Her Time
March 1 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
MARCH 1 • Suzanne Brown
Jane Austen lived in exciting times, and yet until recently was considered “untouched by the political, intellectual, and artistic revolutions of her age.” Drawing on Austen’s novels, Dartmouth visiting assistant professor Suzanne Brown shows how Austen was in fact a keen observer of her era’s values who both shared and critiqued them.
