Jane Austen in the American West

The 2023 Jane Austen Society of North America meeting was held in Denver Colorado this past November. The theme was "Pride and Prejudice: A Rocky Romance." The location and theme gave me an opportunity to bring together two things that I love: Jane Austen and the American West. I explored Austen's surprisingly big role in the 1902 seminal Western novel, The Virginian, by Owen Wister. My talk was live broadcast and now appears as an article in Persuasions Online. You can read the article here.
