Rout Cakes, Riddles and Regency Lovers: Jane Austen’s Emma

Emma Woodhouse may be Austen’s most infuriating heroine, but her doomed attempts at matchmaking take place against a background of fascinating social history. Tutor Judith Hedley looks at the novel itself in detail, but also at contemporary issues such as food, manners, the class system and women’s education – all explored with Austen’s invariable wit and wisdom.

Tea with Mr. Darcy

White soup at the Netherfield ball, hot-house fruit at Pemberley, humbler fare at Longbourne – the food served at social occasions in Jane Austen’s ‘Pride and Prejudice’ is revealing not only of social history but of character. We may not be able to offer Colin Firth in a wet shirt, but with Mr Darcy as our guide and food as our focus this should be a lively day school with Judith Hedley.

History of not very nice things (B)

Tutor Richard Clarke will present more themes ‘spiced-up’ with some social psychology and, probably, some reference to religious beliefs. The themes for this short course will be: Humiliation/Punishment, Terrorists, Climate Change, Divorce/(Marriage), Fake News/Gossip – there may be some revision of this list before the Autumn. Student participation will be central to the success, or otherwise, of these sessions and the main expectation on students will be to have considered and ‘looked-up’ something on the topic before each session. Personal opinions and recollections will be welcomed.

£35 for five sessions
