Jonathan Bowman, PhD, Awarded Tenure
Thursday, June 3, 2010
The Department of Communication Studies would like to congratulate Jonathan Bowman, PhD, who was awarded tenure and promoted to associate professor.
Bowman joined the department in 2007 and has proven to excel as a professor, scholar, and colleague. His expertise enriches the department's curriculum and his pedagogical style exposes students to new experiences. Bowman is an expert on intimacy levels between heterosexual men, an often-misunderstood phenomena and one that he gives careful consideration. He bridges psychological and social approaches to investigate the nuanced ways in which men communicate to achieve (or not achieve) intimacy. His research contributes to the ongoing debates in interpersonal communication. The Department of Communication Studies is lucky to have him.
