Emma Across Media,” a Goucher College student exhibition, showcases Jane Austen’s Emma and various related media students explored throughout spring 2023’s LIT 266: Austen, Adaptations, & Archives course. Dr. Juliette Wells and the seven dedicated students used Special Collections resources and Dr. Wells’ personal teaching collection to unveil all things Emma.

Goucher is filled to the brim with Jane Austen- related websites. Take a look at the introduction to the Jane Austen Collection and the 2015 special exhibition “Emma in America.”
