Jane Franklin Hall

Jane Franklin Hall in South Hobart, Tasmania, is a non-denominational residential college of the University of Tasmania. Familiarly referred to as ‘Jane’, it was founded by the Tasmanian Council of Churches in 1950 as a residential college for women before becoming co-educational in 1973. Jane is a non-denominational Christian institution unobtrusively supported by chaplains of various Christian faiths.

Although there is no direct link between them, the college is named in honour of Jane, Lady Franklin, wife of the famous but ill-fated Arctic explorer Sir John Franklin, who from 1837 to 1843 was the sixth Lieutenant-Governor of Van Diemen's Land. The college seeks to embrace Lady Jane as a patron and places a high value on education and the arts.

Famous quotes containing the words hall and/or jane:

    Go where he will, the wise man is at home,
    His hearth the earth,—his hall the azure dome;
    Where his clear spirit leads him, there’s his road,
    By God’s own light illumined and foreshadowed.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    If the veil were withdrawn from the sanctuary of domestic life, and man could look upon the fear, the loathing, the detestations which his tyranny and reckless gratification of self has caused to take the place of confiding love, which placed a woman in his power, he would shudder at the hideous wrong of the present regulations of the domestic abode.
