Drawing on her honors project from last year, Courtney DuChene ’19 and Dr. Dole have published a piece in Persuasions On-Line, the journal of the Jane Austen Society.
DuChene’s honors project, which was supervised by Dole and Alice Leppert of Media & Communications Studies, focused on updated adaptations of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice and Vladimir Nabokov’s Lolita. As a follow-up, DuChene and Dole submitted a proposal on updates of Pride and Prejudice for a special issue of Persuasions.
The co-authored piece focuses on Austen’s sexually transgressive character Lydia as she appears in adaptations set in modern times. You can read the piece here.
