Jane Austen Talk with Alexis McQuigge

Join University of Regina lecturer Dr. Alexis McQuigge for a special talk as we bring 'Jane Austen July' to a close at the Moose Jaw Public Library.

University of Regina lecturer Dr. Alexis McQuigge will be giving a special talk on the works and significance of Jane Austen to English literature over the last two centuries.

Dr. McQuigge's research interests include:

  • The Restoration and Eighteenth Century

  • Themes of Madness and Monstrosity in the Long Eighteenth Century

  • Jane Austen

McQuigge focuses primarily on women's writing by lesser-known English novelists, especially Eliza Haywood and Penelope Aubin. Her research includes work on female travellers (especially female castaways), women held in captivity (both in England and abroad), and on Lady Mary Wortley Montagu’s Turkish Embassy Letters.

This program is part of our series of 'Jane Austen July' programs.

Drop-in program, no registration required. For more information, contact the Library at 306-692-2787.
