Jane Austen and the British Way of Tea
March 24, 2022 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Dr. Markman Ellis will analyze tea as a multi-faceted concept: a commodity sourced from Asia; a prepared hot beverage; a social event in which tea is consumed; and an ideological construct associated with politeness and the social behaviours of the middling classes. Austen’s fictions cast light on each of these aspects of the performance of tea-taking in Britain, that social ceremony now known as the British ‘way of tea’.
This event is run by Jane Austen & Co, a free public Zoom series focused on the life, histories, and writings of women living in the Regency era., and co-sponsored by the Carolina Asia Center. This year’s series from Jane Austen & Co is “Asia & the Regency,” which will look at topics across East and South Asia in connection with the literature of Jane Austen and the global influences on Jane Austen’s Britain.
