Reimagining Jane Eyre and Great Expectations: a NEH Summer Seminar for K-12 Teachers
UC Santa Cruz, 23 June-12 July 2019

Hosted by the Dickens Project at the beautiful campus of the University of California at Santa Cruz, this three-week seminar for middle and high school teachers examines two frequently taught texts—Jane Eyre and Great Expectations—as reimagined and refracted in imitative texts, plays, and films. We will consider the active cultural afterlives of these texts as we explore the pedagogical potential of literary and cinematic adaptations to promote critical thinking and students’ active engagement with literature.
Informed by current and emerging trends in adaptation studies, the seminar explores a wide array of literary rearticulations, from textually “faithful” films to radical narrative realignments: from textual appropriations to cinematic reimaginings, we will revisit Jane Eyre and Great Expectations across a range of media and in a wide variety of guises across the three weeks of the seminar.

Stormy Sisterhood: Jane Austen’s Northanger Abbey and Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre

Jane Austen’s humor, looks at small town life, and quotable characters have stood the test of time; yet, the same can be said for Brontë’s dark interiors and passionate lovers. Who is the better writer? This session hopes to answer that question with an analysis of Northanger Abbey and Jane Eyre.
