Program of Events


Please join JASNA  Vancouver Region members for an on-line presentation from the 2020 JASNA AGM followed by our annual “Books and Berries.”

Part One: “Well Behaved Women Seldom Make History, a look at Jane Austen, Women Historians and Histories of Women.” The video features Caitlin Kelly from the Department of English at Case Western Reserve University. Ms. Kelly’s research focuses on gender, authority and the novel 1700-1830, which covers Austen’s period. She teaches on Austen in pop culture and, in 2018, her article on The Lizzie Bennet Diaries was published in the Journal of Pedagogy.

Also featured in the video is Misty Krueger, a member of JASNA Maine, who serves on the faculty of the University of Maine at Farmington. She participated in the 2012 Austen-themed National Endowment for the Humanities summer program and co-edited an issue for Persuasions On-Line. She has published on Austen’s juvenilia and is in the formative stage of a book project on Austen’s juvenilia and adolescence.

Part Two:  BOOKS and Berries: Sit back and enjoy your favourite berries of the season ( perhaps with a special topping) while members offer their opinions on books they have recently read. This annual meeting is very popular and we hope visitors near and far will join us.
