Event Details 
Art and Design in the Age of Jane Austen
We will discuss Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, in which she alludes to issues such as the unmarried woman, inherited wealth, abduction, and sexual scandal, as well as the Napoleonic wars. Austen knew that contemporary readers understood the social and political issues of their day and that they could envision the private homes of her protagonists without elaborate descriptions. To enrich your appreciation of Austen, the course addresses social mores, neoclassical architecture, interior design, and clothing. Many of them can be seen in recent BBC videos, parts of which we will watch as we cover the novel’s rich background. Class Canceled - November 12 due to Weather and Snow
