  • Jane Austen’s People in their Places: ‘Northanger Abbey’ and ‘Mansfield Park’
    Does place matter? Austen names two of her novels after locations. This course will examine the significance of location in her novels, but will also consider 'place' in the sense of how her characters are placed in relation to their society.
  • Utopias and Dystopias in English Literature
    Through seminar discussions we will address the origins of the Utopian genre, its developments in the 20th century and the degree to which the genre is a means of commenting upon the present as much as it is a way of speculating about the future.
  • Jane Austen, Mansfield Park
    Mansfield Park was the third of Jane Austen’s novels to be published, in 1814, and the first of her ‘Chawton’ novels. After 200 years it remains Austen’s most controversial novel.
