"Engaging with Jane Austen shows how readers of Jane Austen and other eighteenth-century authors can engage students and their broader community through collaborative public humanities initiatives. By discussing six case studies that take place in classrooms, libraries, museums, archives, literacy and nonprofit centers, and digital spaces, Draxler and Spratt argue that considering multiple approaches to literature's importance to public space-including how the university functions as one of many community spaces, whether in a small town or a large city-can help forge strong connections between the study of eighteenth-century literature and culture and twenty-first-century issues. Throughout these accounts, community partners ranging from students to librarians, archivists, volunteer managers, community organizers, and digital media coordinators offer multiple perspectives and guidance for sustainable and effective community partnerships. Ultimately, this book offers an invitation to help you develop and enact your own community project"-- Provided by publisher.
