I was born in what was then Belgian Congo, in the Ituri Forest, where my parents were missionaries. [Ioan is Welsh for John, so I am basically a Celtic white male, and would have been designated a pieds noir if I was born in French Algeria]. I went to school there (in my mother's primary school), in Wales, Scotland, and completed my higher education at the University of London and the University of Essex. I was a journalist for a period and completed National Service (the draft) for the British army where I spent a fruitful two years with the Army Educational Corps as inspector of schools, current affairs lecturer and librarian at the Royal Military School of Music. I marched to Aldermaston with the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, was Chair of the London New Left Club, and then taught at Cambridge University with the Extra-Mural (Adult Education) department, though mainly based in Norwich. I then joined the Sociology department at the University of Essex (from 1965-70), then in Guyana for six months, then at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario until 1972 when I came to York University. I have been a visitor (for nine months) to the London School of Economics, and have lectured in different parts of the world - New Zealand, Australia, California, Russia, Ireland, India, New York, Chicago, Poland, various places in Canada. My parents and siblings migrated to New Zealand. I have been married twice. The first time unhappily (but Virginia did marry an inmate of a penitentiary, hence my over-theorized Writers in Prison), the second time with gorgeous symmetry with Diane, my Jewish partner and co-investigator, lover and compadre with whom over the past 25 years I have debated, researched, explored everything from the Holocaust to feminism to multi-national corporations to multiculturalism to being parents to our own children, ourselves and many others. I have five children through both marriages, displaying all the interests and competencies that five children can derive from their own sense of living in places as distinct as the nether reaches of California, Oregon, England, and Southern Ontario.

My writing (see the Curriculum Vitae and the two other web-sites) displays at least part of my commitment to come to terms with all this experience as an individual and as an author/teacher. The issue remains, however. In being ourselves through the counter-influence of the media, the reading, the religious texts, where do we stand without subjecting ourselves to the spectre of tribalistic certitude? Or a nonsensical universal being? Or a nihilistic abdication of any value? Or, ultimately, the notion that only my story matters. My story (for that is what it is) invites your commentary. As the bombs fall, the multinationals collude in the destruction of public space (which includes the ozone layer), and the refugees flee, may we pause for a moment and contemplate the interstitial meaning of life?
