Bath Spa University
Jane Austen's England
The course takes students from the last years of George III's active monarchy through to the Regency, and it also encourages students to engage with a complex society that was undergoing rapid growth, commercial/industrial development and growing demands for reform at home, while simultaneously restoring its imperial credentials and expanding to become Europe's leading international power. Additionally it examines the nature of contemporary debates and discussions about gender through Austen's life, work and the characters that she created reflecting the gendered expectations and tensions that operated in both women's and men's lives at the time. Students will also benefit from the university's close connections with the Jane Austen Centre, Jane Austen's House Museum, Chawton House Library, and the Holburne and other Bath Museums.
