Douglas Murray, Professor of English, Belmont University, Nashville, TN, was teaching Northanger Abbey in the fall of 2016, when #MeToo reached a tipping point and became an unavoidable topic of conversation.  Class discussion that fall resulted in a lecture about Austen and the #MeToo movement given at Middle Tennessee State University in the spring of 2017 and then an article in Nineteenth-Century Gender Studies and a chapter in #MeToo and Literary Studies: Reading, Writing and Teaching about Sexual Violence and Rape Culture (Bloomsbury 2021).

This spring, Professor Murray is teaching a class on Jane Austen and the English Country House in Harlaxton Manor, Lincolnshire.
