Professor Jessica M. W. Flitey
Welcome to my webpage. Below you will see a list of my publications, which I hope will be of use to researchers and students. I am Professor of Parapsychology and Paranormal Investigation at the University of Duncairn in Scotland, a position I have held since 1995. I have enjoyed a long and tremendously successful academic career and remain a highly respected figure in my field.
My current research is an in-depth case study of Horton Carew, a Dundonian man whom I argue is something of a magnet for paranormal phenomena. My forthcoming monograph, detailed below, will examine some of the many strange events surrounding Mr. Carew and attempt to offer explanations for them. Before my findings are published, I refer interested readers to his weblog, which I encouraged him to set up. Here he keeps a record of his thoughts and feelings regarding his troubled life.
My Notable achievements:
- In 2003 I was appointed Chair of the Board of Trustees of The Highlands and Islands Academic Clairvoyance Association.
- In 2001 I won the Pillet Gride Award for my essay on the applications of ghee in Vedic Science.
- In 1999, under my guidance, my department became the first in the world to accept a ghost onto a B.Sc. programme. Harolde Longshankes (1415-1455) became the first spirit ever to graduate from an Institute of Higher Learning, receiving a well-earned 2:2 in Pyramidology. Congratulations Harolde, and good luck with your M. Phil!
- In 1998 I received the prestigious Bodel Carrack Award for Effort.
- In 1993 I was awarded the Fulton and Glaive Prize for my research into telekinesis among ungulates.
- In 1989 I became the first Scottish female academic to be successfully transported backwards in time, albeit via astral-projection.
- In 1985 I received the Parr-Suttlidge Oyl-Cascade Award.
- In 1979 I gave birth to my daughter Jaiyyne. This is undoubtedly my highest achievement to date, aside from my many academic awards.
