The Janeite Social Calendar

Click here to see our 2020 Program Calendar

If you feel that “There is a monsterous deal of stupid quizzing, & common-place nonsense talked, but scarcely any wit”, then we encourage to attend any or all of these events on Jane’s social calendar for “It is such a happiness when good people get together — and they always do.”

From lectures, teas, dances, and Jane’s Birthday there is something to attend yourself in the realm of a Janeite.  Anyway, do not fret should you find yourself required to go alone because “from the whole she deduced this useful lesson, that to go previously engaged to a ball, does not necessarily increase either the dignity or enjoyment of a young lady.”

Memories are to be made and friends are to be had, “But remember that the pain of parting from friends will be felt by everybody at times, whatever be their education or state.

See you there!

Childhood in the Georgian Era @ Virtual Discussion via Zoom
Sep 27 @ 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM


In this virtual program, Ellen Kunkelmann, associate editor at the Missouri Historical Society, will discuss childhood in the late Georgian era. Join us on Zoom as we explore the influences of Rationalism, Romanticism, and reality; apply this historical context to Jane Austen’s own family; and take a closer look at representations of childhood and family life in her novels—the good, the bad, and the scathing.

This Program Event is open to the Public

Ellen Kunkelmann is an associate editor at the Missouri Historical Society. She has a BA in English literature with high honors from the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign. Ellen is the publicity coordinator for the Metropolitan St. Louis Region.
