Jane Austen Summer
Program

The University of North Carolina will host its sixth annual Jane Austen Summer Program in June, focusing on the topic “Northanger Abbey and Frankenstein: 200 Years of Horror.” The events will take place at the Hampton Inn & Suites in Carrboro, NC, and at various locations on the UNC campus in Chapel Hill, NC. Participants will have the opportunity to hear expert speakers and participate in discussion groups on the gothic-inspired novels. In addition, they will be able to partake in an English tea, dance at a Regency-style masquerade ball, attend Austen-inspired theatricals, and visit special exhibits tailored to the conference. The Jane Austen Summer Program is designed to appeal to established scholars, K-12 teachers, graduate students, undergraduate students, and Austen fans.
