Mary Bowman


Professor Mary Bowman joined the Department of English faculty of UW-Stevens Point in 1998. Her research interests include narrative and lyric poetry (especially epic and romance), reader response, and feminist criticism. Most recently, she has worked on modern adaptations of and responses to medieval models of heroism. 

Bowman teach courses in medieval and Renaissance literature, in addition to composition, and occasionally Old English as well (English 346). She enjoys watching students develop as readers and writers and learning what their passions are. Professor Bowman hopes to instill in her students a deepened love of literature as well as keener analytical skills, and more openness to unfamiliar texts and diverse people. 

Outside of campus, she enjoys swimming and singing in choir.
