      EVENT DETAILS
      Dress in the Age of Jane Austen

      Explore the lives and dress of the middle-class British gentry during the ‘long’ Regency (1795-1823) through the lens of Jane Austen’s life and writing. During the author’s short life, unprecedented change saw Britain’s turbulent entry into the modern age. Clothing reflected these transitions on local and global scales, and exploring the dress experiences of people who lived through Austen’s age goes a long way to understanding her work, her time, and its histories.

      Speaker: Hilary Davidson, Honorary Associate, University of Sydney. Author of Dress in the Age of Jane Austen, 2019
