Persuasions On-Line will mark the bicentenary of the composition of Jane Austen’s unfinished novel, Sanditon, next year with a special spring issue. The online journal will contain essays from the upcoming conference “Sanditon: 200 Years,” to be held at Trinity College, Cambridge, from March 29-31, 2017.
Austen began to write Sanditon in January of 1817, and the manuscript closes with the date of March 18. Austen died four months later. The Sanditon manuscript is held at King’s College, Cambridge, and attendees will be able to view it during the conference, along with items from the Dorothy Warren and David Gilson Jane Austen collections, which are also held at King’s.
