Gill Lowe has been involved in the development and delivery of the English (Hons) BA course since 1991. She was Course Leader for several years and is now affiliated as Visting Fellow. She specialises in auto/biography, late nineteenth and early twentieth century literature. Whilst studying at UEA for her MA in Life-writing Gill wrote about Virginia Woolf's mother; her work was published by Cecil Woolf as Versions of Julia. Gill became interested in the manuscript of the juvenilia, written between 1891-1895, by Vanessa (later Bell), Thoby and Virginia Stephen (later Woolf). Gill published the first edition of the Hyde Park Gate News, the Stephen Family Newspaper with Hesperus Press. This project led to a variety of related international journal articles and conference papers.
Gill has post-graduate qualifications in Education and in Drama-in-Education. She has taught English and Drama in high schools and Humanities to adults returning to Higher Education. She has developed partnerships with voluntary groups and arts organisations in the local community.
