I am pleased to announce that the theme for this year will be ‘Immortal Austen’ led by Dr Eric Parisot (English, Creative Writing and Australian Studies), Dr Gillian Dooley (Library) and Dr Amy Matthews (English, Creative Writing and Australian Studies).
2017 will see the bicentenary of the death of one of the most famed English authors - Jane Austen. The 'Immortal Austen' research theme will commemorate her death, celebrate her extraordinary and enduring appeal, and broaden Jane Austen studies beyond English literary studies to encapsulate her widening cultural relevance in the twenty-first century.
