H301: Jane Austen Through the Ages in Rainstorm Spring 2020 (May. 30 - 31, 2020)
Jane Austen wrote a bunch of stuffy books about rich, out of touch ladies from the early 1800s, right? In this course, we will evaluate this statement and explore what makes Austen's works so emotionally resonant for many readers to this very day. We'll also explore the various film and other adaptations of her works through the ages through reading excerpts aloud and viewing film clips in class, so if you're interested, no worries if you've never read her work before! We'll focus on Pride and Prejudice and Emma because of the rich adaptations those two works have inspired, but feel free to bring up any Austen work of your choice if you've already encountered them.
