EVENT NEWS: Alumni Book Club, Dec. 7

You’re invited to the Wilkinson College Alumni Book Club: Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey.

In Northanger Abbey Jane Austen parodies the Gothic novels of the 1790s that were best sellers in her youth. Northanger Abbey was the fi rst of Jane Austen’s novels to be completed for publishing and references The Mysteries of Udolpho, a novel by Gothic writer Anne Radcliffe. The novel explores the differences between fi ction and reality and questions the nature of its characters: who can be trusted and who is a true friend. Northanger Abbey is more obviously comedic than any of her later novels and was most likely written for the enjoyment of her family because of the use of literary illusions that her family would have enjoyed. Jane Austen was cautious about publishing this novel after the success of her other novels, because she was concerned that the Gothic novel she was parodying had gone out of fashion. But, nearly 200 years after its eventual publication, the Gothic seems to be as popular as ever.

Space is limited - RSVP by emailing stroop@chapman.edu

There are several parking spots available behind the Elliot Alumni House and additional parking is available across the street in the public parking lot. Street parking is limited.

EVENT NEWS: "Love and Children" w/ Shoshana Grossbard, Nov. 8

The Institute for the study of Religion, Economics, and Society (IRES) is pleased to announce the next seminar of the fall semester. The seminar will take place in Wilkinson Hall, Room 116, on Tuesday, November 8. 

The speaker is Shoshana Grossbard, an economist from San Diego State University who will be presenting her paper "Love and Children". 

The cost of children includes all monetary outlays, ranging from cribs to college tuition, as well as time costs. These time costs have been measured either in terms of time spent on childcare and related household production or as foregone parental leisure. It has also been documented that children are costly in terms of foregone happiness. In this paper we examine how children affect respondents’ feelings of being loved by their current partners. Using data from the National Longitudinal Survey 1997 cohort (hereafter NLSY97) we estimate linear regressions of respondents’ assessments of their partners’ love valued from 0 to 10. Our findings indicate a further sense in which children are costly: their presence appears to be associated with lower levels of spousal love. This appears to hold for women more than for men, and for Whites more than for Blacks.
