Digital Austen is an expanding project that uses new technology to bring Jane Austen and her writings to a modern audience. An online timeline situates Jane Austen within the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, while an online map situates her geographically within England. Future additions will expand on Austen’s historical contexts and show how her novels have been adapted across time.
The site is made possible by funding from the Mellon Crossing Boundaries Grant at St. Lawrence University. It is directed by Caroline Breashears with guidance and technical support from Eric Williams-Bergen, Nicole Roche, and its contributors include the trailblazing students in the Senior Seminar on Jane Austen at St. Lawrence.
