Mary Bowden specializes in British literature of the long
nineteenth century, focusing particularly on environmental topics. Her current
book project, "Plant Plots: Plant Science and British Narrative,
1800-1910" explores how nineteenth-century advances in plant science
influenced how literary authors positioned plants in narrative fiction. Her
work brings together current discussions in critical plant studies, science and
literature, the environmental humanities, and narrative theory.
Professor Bowden's teaching interests include
nineteenth-century literature, science and literature, environmental topics,
nature writing, and travel literature.
