HRC Public Lectures




Tuesday 18 July | The Making of Jane Austen

Prof Devoney Looser (Arizona State University)
5.15pm, National Library of Australia

Devoney Looser’s lecture will introduce you to some of the unsung innovators who first turned ‘Miss Austen’ into a household name, from artists and activists to actors and audiences, looking at how they made and remade her image before popular audiences.

Join us in the National Library of Australia Theatre on July 18th, the 200th anniversary of her death, to celebrate Austen’s life and writings and make sense of how her characters and stories have come to be imprinted on each new generation of readers.
