Dear friends and readers,
This is to explain why syllabi may appear on this blog from time to time. I have placed on this blog and Austen Reveries lectures, notes on books, and ideas about courses I’d like to give or have given. I shall now also put here syllabi for courses I teach. I had been putting these on my website, but today encountered sufficient obstacles when I added to or changed the site (my website kept reverting to the form and material it hosted five years ago), such that I’ve decided from today on while I will maintain the site (fix any broken links that I can to material meant to be on more or less permanent display for all readers), any further new material or substantial changes in already extant pages will have to go on a new website that I may try to buy or create access to in the (I hope) near future. I regret this because the website was a creation of my husband and myself working together over many years. He is no longer here, and the technicians at Hostway.Com do not understand the system of directories he set up. Whatever I do in this vein for a group of students in a given term will go under the new category & tag teaching.
