JASNA’s 2013 Essay Contest is under way, offering high school, college, and graduate school students the opportunity to share their thoughts about Jane Austen’s writing. We invite students to submit short essays on the following topic, which is inspired by the theme of the upcoming AGM, “Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice . . . Timeless”:
which is both like and unlike our times. What
do we discover about time, times, or
timeliness from reading Pride and Prejudice?”
Cash scholarships of $250 to $1,000 and
complimentary registration for the 2013 AGM
in Minneapolis will be awarded to first-,
second-, and third-place winners in each division. The deadline for entries is
May 15, 2013.
