The Jane Austen Summer Program is excited to announce its 2018 conference, “Northanger Abbey & Frankenstein: 200 Years of Horror.” The sixth annual event will take place June 14-17 in Carrboro and Chapel Hill, NC. Participants will have the opportunity to hear expert speakers and participate in discussion groups each day, as well as join in a Regency-style masquerade ball, attend Austen-inspired theatricals, partake in an English tea, and visit special exhibits tailored to the conference. The discussions will consider Northanger Abbey and Frankenstein in their historical context as well as their afterlives in fiction and film. The Jane Austen Summer Program is designed to appeal to established scholars, high school teachers, graduate students, undergraduate students, and Austen fans—anyone with a passion for all things Austen is welcome and encouraged to attend!
