NOV. 13, JASNA VANCOUVER welcomes Dr. Lindsey Seatter

Dr. Seatter’s topic will be “Space, Voice and Reimagination: Narrative Discourse in Austen’s Later Fiction.”

This will be a discussion on the Romantic era, from roughly the middle of the 18th century through the next 100 years when the world saw a period of rapid and revolutionary social and political change. The novel during this period underwent enormous changes, rising from relative disrepute to becoming the foremost literary genre. Austen’s inimitable style, Linsey contends, lies at the nexus of  this transition and her presentation will focis on her final three works: Emma, Persuasion and Sanditon.
