His most recent book-length publications are The Library of the Sidneys of Penshurst Place, edited by Germaine Warkentin, Joseph L. Black and William R. Bowen (2013), Renaissance Studies and New Technologies, edited by W. R. Bowen and R. G. Siemens (2008), and Platonic Theology, trans. by M. J. B. Allen, Latin text ed. by J. Hankins with W. R. Bowen (2001-06). Dr. Bowen is the current editor of Renaissance and Reformation / Renaissance et Réforme. His commitment to digital humanities and online publication is evidenced by his work as the founding director of Iter: Gateway to the Middle Ages and Renaissance, as the editor of FICINO, and as co-editor of the book series New Technologies in Medieval and Renaissance Studies.
