Persuasions is JASNA’s annual, peer-reviewed print journal, which is included in JASNA membership. It offers essays on Jane Austen’s writing, her world, and her legacy in literature and other media.
Each issue includes papers from JASNA's most recent Annual General Meeting as well as essays by scholars and others on a variety of topics. The lively writing is aimed at both academics and general readers who wish to learn more about Jane Austen.
Members receive Persuasions in the mail each spring and may also download an ebook version. Many back issues are available for purchase, and out-of-print issues have been digitized and archived on this site.
