Jonathan M. Bowman, PhD, professor of communication, teaches courses in human communication processes and the methods through which we obtain that knowledge about communication. He is most involved in the National Communication Association where he has been a chair of the Nonverbal Communication Division. Bowman’s research focuses on communication processes associated with intimacy and close relationships, with publications addressing nonverbal messaging, male friendships, technology in close relationships, and small-group communication. He has authored, coauthored, or edited five books and multiple editions, and contributed his knowledge to a variety of media affiliates like Good Morning America, USA Today, and National Public Radio. He was the recipient of the National Communication Association Ecroyd Award for Outstanding Teaching in Higher Education, the highest teaching honor in the discipline internationally, as well as the national Western States Communication Association Distinguished Teaching Award.
