Dr. Bowman focuses on women's history and nineteenth-century U.S. history. She is particularly interested in moments of transnational collaboration and cooperation among mid-nineteenth social reformers. Her research examines the growth of transnational communitarian socialist movements that emerged to challenge the prevailing economic system and gender norms in the mid-nineteenth century. She received her Ph.D. and Master's degree in History from the University of California, Santa Barbara.
