A Lady's Education: Women's Arts During the Era of Jane Austen

The women in Jane Austen's novels are frequently engaged in the arts: they sing, dance, write poetry, and more. Arts literacy was a critical component of upper class women's education in Regency England to demonstrate marriageability and provide household entertainment. Drawing from the expertise of scholars in literature, dance, music, and the visual arts, this class will explore women's "accomplishment arts" during Jane Austen's era.
