Hello and welcome to my personal website.

My name is Bernadette (bird) Bowen and I am a PhD candidate in the School of Media and Communication at Bowling Green State University. My research interests intersect the broad fields of critical and feminist theories, with an eye towards the ideological struggle between institutions, gender, and media ecology.

Please feel free to click and explore around my website. There's much to see.
What you see here differs depending on which medium (computer/smartphone) you choose to view it from. In other words, the medium is the message of who I am here.
