Chawton House

During the month of June, Dr. Murray is a Visiting Fellow at the Chawton House Library in Hampshire, England.  The Chawton estate was owned by Jane Austen’s brother Edward, and she revised or drafted all six of her novels in a cottage in Chawton village. During the last two decades, Edward’s manor house has become a preeminent center for the study of women’s writing from 1600-1830.
