Schick Lecture Series features author Edward Copeland on Thursday

TERRE HAUTE — The Indiana State University Schick Lecture Series on Language, Literature and Lexicography will feature Edward Copeland on Thursday, March 7.

The presentation will take place at 3:30 p.m. in Root Hall A-264. A Reception will follow in Root Hall.             

Copeland is a professor emeritus of English at Pomona College, a liberal-arts college in Southern California. He will speak about “Jane Austen: Adaptations and Appropriations.”

During his three decades of teaching, Copeland taught English literature courses focusing on Jane Austen, 18th-century literature, literature of the American South and early women’s fiction.

Copeland has published more than five books, recently serving as the editor of the Cambridge University Press edition of “Sense and Sensibility” (2006) and the author of “Women Writing about Fiction: Women’s Fiction in England, 1790-1820” (1995). He has published essays on Richardson, Defoe, Fielding, Cleland, Burney and other 18th-century figures.

Copeland is the recipient of several honors, including a Fulbright, a National Endowment of the Humanities summer fellowship, and an Andrew W. Mellow Foundation Emeritus Fellowship, for which Copeland received a unanimous nomination by a special collegiate committee.

The Schick Lecture Series in Language, Literature and Lexicography began in 1988 and is made possible through a bequest from Joseph S. Schick, professor emeritus of English.
