Jean Owen, 1992-1997

I have recently completed a Phd with the London Consortium and am now freelancing as an editor/proofreader and undertaking independent research in incest studies.

My interests are feminisms, confessional narratives, troublesome sexualities and first-person writing.

I have very fond memories of my link with the Sociology dept, even though my degrees were in Literature. I spent many happy hours in the Soc. common room, helping myself to an endless supply of coffee and basking in the buzz, warmth and humour of staff and students alike. As a post-grad, I took several courses with Ken (Plummer) and Ian (Craib), which still inspire my approach to research. What a terrific time it was back then to be in conversations with such rich company.
