Jane Eyre as Material Text: The Lives & Afterlives of a Classic

April 19, 2018 16:00 to 17:30

Kelvin Smith Library is proud to present “Jane Eyre as Material Text: The Lives and Afterlives of a ‘Classic’”a talk by Dr. John A. Buchtel, Director of the Booth Family Center for Special Collections at Georgetown University.

Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre, like many other classics, has gone through hundreds of iterations since its first edition was published 175 years ago: illustrated editions, cheap reprints, mass-market paperbacks, translations, abridgments, comic books, and adaptations for stage and screen. This talk will dive into the book’s various manifestations in its design, format, and general depiction, and how it reflects culture over time.

This event is made possible through the generous support of Case Western Reserve University alumna, Julia Gelfand (MSL ‘77). This presentation is part of the National Collegiate Book Collecting Contest which will take place again at Kelvin Smith Library in Spring 2019.

Seating is limited. Reserve your spot today at:

Event Location: Kelvin Smith Library, Freedman Center

This event is free and open to the public.
