The hat 'n the Cat
Jacqueline Howard (née Mawet) is an independent scholar living in the Adelaide Hills in South Australia. Born in England of Anglo-Flemish parents, she migrated to Australia with them under the post World War II assisted passage scheme, arriving in Adelaide in late 1947 as a '£10 pom'. Since retiring in 2006 from teaching at St Mary's College, where she was for many years Coordinator of English & Languages, she has resumed work on long neglected academic projects. Her research interests are in the long eighteenth century, Gothic fiction, Romanticism, the short story and biography.
