Dancing in Jane Austen's Novels - with John Mullan

11.30 (duration 1hr 30mins)

Venue: Elwin Room, BRLSI, 16-18 Queen Square, BA1 2HN

‘It may be possible to do without dancing entirely,’ observes Jane Austen in Emma, with heavy irony – for she is about to show us how essential it is to the destinies of her characters. This talk will explore why dancing features in every one of Austen’s novels and will reveal what we need to know about the conventions governing the dances that she describes.

The Delights of Jane Austen’s Dialogue - with John Mullan

14:00 (duration 1hr 30mins)

Venue: Elwin Room, BRLSI, 16-18 Queen Square, BA1 2HN

Jane Austen was revolutionary in her use of dialogue, especially to comic ends. She invented distinctive voices for her characters, but she also made them imitate, provoke or misunderstand each other. Looking at examples from all Austen’s novels, we will see how she requires the reader to be a participant in their conversations: to hear what is not said – or what characters inadvertently give away about themselves.
