Dr. Alice Villaseñor appeared as a virtual speaker at the 2021 Jane Austen Festival, “Race, Power & the Arts in Jane Austen’s World.” She presented on From Prada to Nada (2011), a film adaptation of Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility (1811) set in Los Angeles, and discussed how the film uses Austen’s story of the displacement of the Dashwood women to highlight the displacement of Latinx communities.
A Jane Austen scholar, Dr. Villaseñor was invited to write a review of the 2020 film Emma for the British Society of Eighteenth-Century Studies, an interdisciplinary scholarly society based in the United Kingdom that promotes the study of all aspects of 18th-century history, literature and culture.
