Eve M. Duffy, director of the University of North Carolina–Chapel Hill Program in the Humanities, recently informed us that UNC–Chapel Hill is partnering with the English and Comparative Literature Department at UNC to offer a Jane Austen Summer Program June 27-30. The four-day program celebrates the 200th anniversary of Pride and Prejudice. Designed, not only for scholars, but also for high-school teachers, and graduate and undergraduate students, the program is open to anyone with a passion for all things Austen. Tuition is $499 and includes parking on campus, breakfast, break food, a buffet dinner, dance lessons, and a regency ball. Current K -12 teachers are eligible for scholarships that cover approximately half the tuition cost. For more information, including the program agenda, visit http://humanities.unc.edu/programs/jasp.
