Fictions of Home: Jane Austen to the Present Day

This one-week course explores the concept of 'home' in literature, from the early 19th century to the present day, covering a wide range of authors from Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice and Northanger Abbey through to Charles Dickens, Katherine Mansfield and Virginia Woolf, and ending with contemporary writers. How does the modern idea of 'home' emerge in the writings of Jane Austen, and when does a house become a home?
The course aims to give insights into great writers of the past 200 years, and to reveal how literature bears witness to the meanings of 'home'.

Venue: Wolfson College, Cambridge.
