Well Behaved Women Seldom Make History:
Jane Austen, Women Historians, and Histories of Women

We look forward to seeing everyone at our next virtual meeting where Caitlin Kelly, Lecturer in the Department of English at Case Western Reserve University, will provide us with a lively talk contextualizing young Jane Austen as a historian. This is a preview of a presentation that Caitlin and her fellow presenter Misty Krueger, Assistant Professor of English at the University of Maine, Farmington, will give at the 2020 Virtual AGM.

In addition to her work at CWRU, Caitlin Kelly served as the Project Coordinator for the NEH Summer Seminar on “Jane Austen and Her Contemporaries” in 2012, and was an editor of the 2015 Valancourt Press publication of Jane West’s A Gossip’s Story, and a Legendary Tale. In 2018, her article on teaching a multimedia adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, “The Lizzie Bennet Diaries: A Multimedia Model for Students (and Teachers),” appeared in the journal Pedagogy. Reflecting her interest in women writers and history, Caitlin’s current research project focuses on Leonora Sansay’s 1808 autobiographical novel Secret History; or, The Horrors of St. Domingo.
