First Call for Papers
INTERNATIONAL JANE AUSTEN: Jane Austen's Comedy

La Trobe University, Melbourne, Australia
November 29th – December 2nd 2007

http://austen2007.net

'Remember the country and the age in which we live. Remember that we are English, that we are Christians.' Henry Tilney's rebuke to Catherine Morland can be read in many ways, but it is certain that Jane Austen, unlike many of her contemporaries - Ann Radcliffe, Charlotte Smith, Maria Edgeworth or Scott - never ventures outside England, and never presents a foreigner. Yet her novels are increasingly read, enjoyed and studied in cultures quite distinct from the one in which she wrote.
