Professional Bio

Mollie Bowman is a second-year Master's student in English at the Pennsylvania State University. With a deep interest in early modern poetics, she studies many British poets and writers with an emphasis on the works of John Milton.

Her current research interests revolve around the reception of the works of Milton from the late seventeenth century to the present day, as well as the lingering cultural impact of the authorial icon of Milton himself. Within the early modern period more generally, she focuses on Christian identity, imitation and invention, classical and authorial reception, and gender and sexuality.

She recently presented on the representation of the Miltonic idol in George Eliot’s Middlemarch at the 13th International Milton Symposium. She has presented elsewhere on topics like queer coding in Stephen King’s IT and the lingering effects of online fatigue in virtual Writing Labs during the Covid-19 pandemic. She is an award-winning writing lab consultant who was recognized as one of the top 19 student employees in the nation by the NSEA in 2022.
