NoteStreams By Kathryn Sutherland

Jane Austen and Social Judgement

Jane Austen’s characters are continually watching, judging and gossiping about others and, in turn, are watched, judged and gossiped about. Professor Kathryn Sutherland explores the ways in which behaviour and etiquette are closely monitored in the novels, and how characters must learn to be skilful readers of those around them.
Two brief videos by Professor Sutherland are included.
