On Jane's Ipod

Jane Austen didn't have an Ipod, but she did use music in her novels to set pivotal scenes. In her article, What Jane Heard, music scholar, Jeanice Brooks explores favourite tunes in Jane Austen's life and in her works.

Jane Austen Society in Nova Scotia

The Jane Austen Society is our counterpart organization in the UK. In 2017 they are holding a conference in Nova Scotia, Canada, to highlight naval issues. Three of Jane's brother were successful in the navy. Transatlantic Perspectives on Jane Austen: 200 years of Persuasion is a great opportunity for Canadians to mix with British Austen fans.
