Collins Hemingway illustrated lecture :Beyond the Miniatures: the real world of Jane Austen
Overview of the major issues of the day, which are either missing or carefully embedded/hidden in her novels. Political and labor history, war, science and technology—the developments that led to the Industrial Revolution—and the new entrepreneurs. The Long War with France helped drive labor and political unrest, with the war bringing hardship, automation creating labor unrest, and France doing all it could to assist disaffected citizens in rebelling against the English government.
Collins Hemingway is a well regarded lecturer visiting Australia from Oregon, United States of America, and is speaking at the Jane Austen Society of Australia on another topic related to Jane Austen.
