Stephen Bowman

I am a transatlantic historian of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and have research expertise in cultural diplomacy and elite networking between Britain and the US. I obtained my PhD from Northumbria University in 2014 and also have degrees from the University of Stirling. I joined the University of the Highlands and Islands in January 2016 and have also taught a wide variety of subjects at Durham University, Northumbria University, Newcastle University and Stirling University. My current and future research focuses on the various social and ideological connections between Britain and North America, in particular the Scottish element. I was the 2013 winner of the Transatlantic Studies Association’s Donald Cameron Watt Prize and my first book, The Pilgrims Society and Public Diplomacy, 1895-1945, was released with Edinburgh University Press in March 2018. I am a native of Cumbernauld and a long-suffering supporter of Clyde FC.
