About the Speaker

Dr Danielle Grover

Danielle completed her doctoral thesis on Jane Austen and other 18th-century novelists at the University of Southampton in 2012. This was following her completion of a BA (Southampton), MA (Warwick) and PGCE (Durham) in English Literature.

Danielle loves offering courses on Jane Austen’s novels, which is her specialist subject. She has had several articles published on Austen; most recently, in 2018, one appeared in ‘Jane Austen’s Regency World Magazine’. Danielle has lectured on Austen at international conferences in Australia, Ireland, the UK and, most recently, in the USA in 2018. In 2008, Danielle spent two months as a Visiting Fellow at Chawton House Library- a site where Austen wrote her major novels. To date, she has designed and delivered seven courses on Jane Austen at three adult education centres and has invitations from others. For two years, she acted as Reviewer for the Jane Austen Society UK Newsletter.

Danielle is currently an English teacher and Lecturer based in Surrey. In her spare time, Danielle enjoys teaching the piano, theatre visits, travel and ballet.
