Journals of the Jane Austen Society of North America

Cover of Persuasions JASNA publishes two annual, peer-reviewed journals, Persuasions: The Jane Austen Journal and Persuasions: The Jane Austen Journal On-Line. Both contain essays and articles on Jane Austen’s writing and her world—its literature, music, visual arts, science, politics, religion. While some essays may examine Austen’s literary forebears, others may explore her impact on later writers and other media in an effort to understand Jane Austen’s role in the world today. The journals include perspectives on Austen shared at the Annual General Meetings and essays by other prominent Austen scholars.

The lively and precise writing found in Persuasions and Persuasions On-Line addresses both academics and general readers who wish to learn more about Jane Austen and her writing. Unlike the speakers whom Catherine Morland unintentionally satirizes, these authors write well enough not to be misunderstood!

Information about the submission of essays to the Editor is available on this site.
