Novelist and Queen Mary alumna Sarah Waters has received an Honorary Fellowship from the University, presented by Professor Margaret Reynolds of the School of English and Drama.
Sarah said: “I am absolutely thrilled to be receiving an Honorary Fellowship from Queen Mary. I have many happy memories of my time as a postgraduate student at the university, and the academic work I did there was very much the starting-point of my career as a novelist. This award therefore feels very special to me. It’s a huge treat and honour.”
Sarah Waters studied English Literature at the Universities of Kent and Lancaster and received her PhD from Queen Mary with a thesis titled Wolfskins and Togas: Lesbian and Gay Historical Fictions, 1870 to the present.
