“Welcome in; Do not enter” Diversity in Austen Adaptations

March 3 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm EST

Mar. 3 at 4 p.m.: We will be welcoming Damianne Scott of “Black Girl Loves Jane” to our next virtual meeting!

“Welcome in; Do not enter: A thoughtful exposition on the encouragement and the disappointment of diversity in Austen adaptations”

This presentation will explain the theories for why diversity in Austen-based films and adaptations is desired, but not welcomed enthusiastically.  The films and series to be discussed range from Bridgerton to Hallmark’s Sense & Sensibility (airing Feb 24th).

Damianne (Dami) Scott is an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the University of Cincinnati Blue Ash and an Adjunct Instructor of English Composition at Cincinnati State. She has earned undergraduate and graduate degrees from Xavier University. To celebrate the idea that it is perfectly wonderful to be an African-American woman who loves Jane Austen, she created the Facebook page “Black Girl Loves Jane” in 2018 which now has over 1500 followers.
