Tim Bullamore opened the speakers' portion of the event with a thorough, informative, and enthusiastically delivered talk on obituaries in the time of Jane Austen.
We learned about royals, criminals, authors, and the obituaries they received.
“Webster has an outstanding English Department that supports their students, cares about them personally, and believes in their capabilities.
They pushed me, and I'm very grateful that they did.”Mindy Sansoucie graduated from Webster in May with a BA in Creative Writing and a minor in Psychology.
She not only engages the scholarly community, but moves beyond what others have written in the past to come to her own conclusions about Austen's ‘Pride and Prejudice,'” said Hwang.
“I am thrilled that the Jane Austen Society of North America recognized Mindy's exceptional work.”Sansoucie said she is grateful to the help that faculty provided her throughout the essay.
We watch the plot through Austen's female characters and, therefore, notice time from the female perspective.
Austen's women are always waiting or rushing to the whims of the men.
Attendees met at President Garfield's monument at Lakeview Cemetery at 10am to begin the walking tour.
We were guided through some of the best and most interesting monuments in the cemetery, and instructed in the various symbols and meanings of the different styles of monuments.
