The College of Liberal Arts' University Forum lecture series presents "Jane Austen, Then and Now" a talk by Devoney Looser, Professor of English, Arizona State University.

How did Jane Austen (1775-1817), a moderately successful English novelist in her own lifetime, become an international literary icon? It started long before Colin Firth’s wet-white-shirted Mr. Darcy in the BBC "Pride and Prejudice" (1995). Professor Devoney Looser’s illustrated lecture will introduce you to some of the unsung innovators who turned Austen into a household name. Learn about the illustrators and dramatists, actors and activists, who made it possible for Austen to be recognized as the great novelist who is so widely known and loved today.
