Audrey Bilger, president of Reed College, will discuss her book, Laughing Feminism: Subversive Comedy in Frances Burney, Maria Edgeworth, and Jane Austen. She is the former vice president and dean of the college at Pomona College and was professor of literature and faculty director for the Center for Writing and Public Discourse at Claremont McKenna College. Her work focuses on comedy, the English novel, Jane Austen, feminist theory, popular culture, and gender and sexuality.
