Owens CV

I came to Drake University's English Department, where I teach courses in Drama and Irish Literature, in August of 2003. I received my B.A. in Latin and English from DePauw University in 1996 and my Ph.D. in English Literature from Indiana University in 2003.

While at IU, I taught courses in Drama, Fiction, Irish Literature, and Literary Interpretation and directed plays by Samuel Beckett, Harold Pinter, Oscar Wilde, Tony Kushner, and others.

Though I specialize in theater performance and twentieth-century British drama, I maintain dilettantish (and procrastinatory) interest in music, cookery, postmodern fiction, gardening, poker, chess, and playwriting. I am a mediocre runner, a poor tennis player, and a worse golfer.
