At the annual meeting of the American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies in Los Angeles in March, several seminars and round tables focused on “The Eighteenth Century on Film.”  John O'Neill, the Edmund A. LeFevre Professor of English emeritus chaired a seminar on the topic that included a discussion of the 2013 film "Belle."

He also took part in a two-part roundtable discussion that included screenwriters Stella Tillyard (author of the 1999 PBS television miniseries "Aristocrats") and Jeffrey Hatcher (screenwriter of "Stage Beauty," "The Duchess," and "Casanova") as well as several academic scholars. O’Neill also participated in a roundtable discussion of teaching Jane Austen.
