Zoom –The Lady’s Magazine and the Making of Jane Austen

Jennie’s talk will illuminate the influence of this first modern women’s magazine on the life and work of Austen.

Jennie Batchelor started her career as the first Chawton House Library Postdoctoral Fellow just as the renovation of the Great House was being completed. She is now Professor of Eighteenth-Century Studies at the University of Kent. Jennie has written widely on women’s writing, eighteenth-century dress, and early women’s magazines. Her most recent book,  Jane Austen Embroidery (2020) was co-devised with Alison Larkin. She has appeared on the New Statesman’s Hidden Histories podcast, BBC Radio 4, and was interviewed for Lucy Worsley’s Jane Austen: Behind Closed Doors. Jennie is also Patron of the Kent branch of the Jane Austen Society.

We will have a meet and greet time from 10:30 – 11 am EST for people to sign in and chat a bit.  The program will start at 11 am EST.  A Q&A will follow the talk.
