Teresa Gowan, Faculty Fellow, Fall 2009

Teresa Gowan (Department of Sociology, CLA), Fall 2009

Project: “Between the ‘Higher Power‘ and ‘Personal Responsibility‘: Addiction Treatment and Neoliberal Policy Management”

Gowan undertook and supervised hundreds of hours of fieldwork and interviews, making valuable headway on the first publications from her project. The feedback she received from other fellows, in particular Nancy Luxon, Jean Langford, and Lisa Uddin, transformed her conceptualization of her project. She currently has two articles under review based on her work during the fellowship: “Making the Criminal Addict: Subjectivity and Social Control in a Strong-Arm Rehab,” and “Agency, Addiction, and the Politics of Self-Control: Doing Harm Reduction in a Heroin Users‘ Group.”
