Engaging the Age of Jane Austen

Humanities scholars, in general, often have a difficult time explaining to others why their work matters, and eighteenth-century literary scholars are certainly no exception. To help remedy this problem, literary scholars Bridget Draxler and Danielle Spratt offer this collection of essays to defend the field's relevance and demonstrate its ability to help us better understand current events, from the proliferation of media to ongoing social justice battles. The result is a book that offers a range of approaches to engaging with undergraduates, non-professionals, and broader publics into an appreciation of eighteenth-century literature. Essays draw on innovative projects ranging from a Jane Austen reading group held at the public library to students working with an archive to digitize an overlooked writer's novel. Reminding us that the eighteenth century was an exhilarating age of lively political culture--marked by the rise of libraries and museums, the explosion of the press, and other platforms for public intellectual debates--Draxler and Spratt provide a book that will not only be useful to eighteenth-century scholars, but can also serve as a model for other periods as well. This book will appeal to librarians, archivists, museum directors, scholars, and others interested in digital humanities in the public life.

This collection of essays focuses on the ways in which the life and work of Jane Austen is being re-framed and re-imagined in 20th and 21st-century literature and culture. Tracing the connections between the construction of a Modernist Jane Austen in the early 20th century and feminist and post-feminist appropriations of her texts in the later 20th century, the essays in this volume also examine the ways in which Austen has more recently emerged as a complex point of reference on the global stage, her novels being adapted in settings ranging from Amritsar to California, her name being invoked in political discourse on internet sites and in the printed press as shorthand for English or more broadly Western liberal cultural values. The volume is distinctive in its international scope, and in its focus on Austen as a dynamic cultural signifier. Together, the essays explore the richness and complexity of the cultural encounters generated through re-inscriptions of an imagined 'Jane Austen', and ask what they can tell us about contemporary desires for cultural authority and authenticity.

Jane Austen loved a garden. She took a keen interest in flower gardening and kitchen gardening alike. This book strolls through the sorts of gardens that Jane Austen would have known and visited: the gardens of the great estates, cottage gardens, gardens in town, and public gardens and parks. Some of the gardens she owned or knew exist still in some form today; among the gardens highlighted is the restored garden at Jane Austen’s House Museum in Chawton, England, complete with a sample planting plan of the flowers grown there now. The book also includes touring information for gardens featured in film adaptations of the novels. With lush photos, social history, excerpts from the novels, information on her life, and period drawings, this book brings Georgian and Regency gardens and Jane Austen’s world to life. In the Garden with Jane Austen captures the essence and beauty of the traditional English garden. As the heroine of Mansfield Park Fanny Price observes, “To sit in the shade on a fine day, and look upon verdure, is the most perfect refreshment.”

How often have you strolled through the villages of Sense and Sensibility, climbed the windswept moors of Wuthering Heights, or raced down dangerous alleys in Oliver Twist's London? These classics are memorable because their authors used their own homes and surroundings to create them. A Dream House takes you on a journey to the homes of sixteen English writers. Each chapter includes a brief biography of the author (or authors) that lived in that home, how the home or countryside was used in various books, what you'll find when you tour the house, and travel directions. Follow Carol Chernega as she admires the table where Jane Austen polished her masterpieces, explores the boathouse that was the inspiration for Agatha Christie's Dead Man's Folly, and meets Tricki Woo and Mrs. Pomfrey in James Herriot's surgery. Whether you're an armchair traveler or planning a trip, Carol's humorous adventures and thoughtful insights will entice you into entering the world of literary England. Carol Chernega worked in Jane Austen's garden in Chawton, England as part of her grant as the first recipient of the International Visitor Program for the Jane Austen Society of North America (JASNA). She also worked for the Chawton House Library and the Jane Austen Society of the United Kingdom. Carol has visited England over twenty times since 1997, including two stints as a tour leader for trips to the Chelsea Flower Show. This gives her plenty of material for her lectures on Jane Austen, gardening, and England, including lecturing at JASNA's national conference. As the English garden editor of BellaOnline, she writes a column on creating an English garden, and has written a booklet on the subject. Carol owns One Garden at a Time, a garden maintenance business near Pittsburgh, PA. She specializes in English gardens and pruning. She's produced a DVD called Pruning Shrubs with Your Personal Gardener, which is available on her web site www.onegardenatatime.biz
