This September at the Eudora Welty Library in Jackson, JASNA
president, Iris Lutz will present "Houses in Jane Austen's Life and Fiction.
And finally, as I mark the end of my term as JASNA
President, I want to thank Persuasions Editor Susan Allen Ford, the Editorial Board, and the authors of the essays included in our print and online journals for their valuable contributions to our understanding and appreciation of Jane Austen and her works.
Here I suspect that another JASNA friend, Maggie Sullivan, who does the Austen blog, will immediately remind me of Henry Tilney's helping Catherine Morland; Maggie is a Tilney woman
I learned to think in a different way about this magic, Austen's writing, from another JASNA friend I have made in my Presidency, Cheryl Kinney, MD.
Promoting this accuracy--this feeling for the period--is why JASNA
exists and why we have Persuasions.
JASNA SA was contracted by the Mexican National Security Council (Consejo Nacional de Seguridad) to build a law enforcement wireless communications solution that would improve emergency unit response time, vehicle location services, and dispatching facilities.
It was agreed upon prior to the project that CORBA technology be a required component of this solution because of its unmatched ability to provide the 24x7 reliability and cross-platform compatibility equal to the challenge of protecting the citizens of Nuevo Leon," said Juan Lozano, president of JASNA SA.
The new law enforcement wireless communications system built by JASNA SA, IONA, and other partners including Dataradio Inc.
With this note, on behalf of the Editorial Board and the President of JASNA
, I am dedicating this issue of Persuasions in honor of Doctor Joan Austen-Leigh.
