New York Metropolitan Region: "So Far We Are Equal"
Austen's Teachings on Women, Independence and Equality
Those of us who turn to Jane Austen in times of joy and trouble, for mirth, consolation, or wisdom, know no 200th commemoration of her birth may be held without reflecting on the relevance of her life and works.
Join us for an afternoon of sparkling conversation (and some sparkling drinks as well!) when Dr. Jenny Davidson, professor of Comparative and English Literature at Columbia University and author of the upcoming Reading Jane Austen, discusses what Austen’s depiction of women in society has to tell us about independence and equality…perhaps lessons pertinent to contemporary women and men?
