Jane Austen Study Weekend in Bath, 1992


I am writing to you as Editor of Persuasions on behalf of the Bath and Bristol branch of the Jane Austen Society.  Together with the University of Bristol we periodically organise residential study “long weekends” open to all with the aim of promoting understanding and enjoyment of the works of Jane Austen.  Our last such event, in 1989, attracted about sixty participants from all corners of the globe and proved a very successful, stimulating and friendly occasion – a great way of meeting like-minded people, learning more about a favourite author, and visiting Bath.

Our next such course is to be held in Bath from 9-13 April 1992.  The title will be “Jane Austen: Text and Context” and a varied programme of speakers, events and outings is to be offered.

I realise that this is still far in the future, but we are already advanced with our planning, and, similarly, potential participants may be filling their diaries well in advance.

Interested readers should write for preliminary details to: Dr. Rowena Fowler, The Extra-Mural Department, University of Bristol, Queens Road, Bristol, England.


Yours sincerely,


Maggie Lane
