Project updates


The performance by the British troupe Austentatious was a witty and comical ovation to the life of Austen. Every event - including the game night, Murder Mystery play and guest lectures - was well enjoyed and a unique expression of tribute to the Immortal Jane.

Work on our conference publication is officially underway!

We, the Immortal Jane organizing team are very happy to announce that our project has been successfully funded via Startnext. It gives us immense pleasure to thank all our contributors for helping us realising the events as we had hoped to. All the events organised were enjoyed by participants and organisers. The Student Conference, on 22nd and 23rd June, acted as an excellent platform for students to present their papers and interact with a vibrant audience and research cohort.
