Dr. Bounds obtained her Ph.D. in U.S. History with an emphasis in social/cultural and military/diplomatic history at Texas A&M University in College Station, where she taught several U.S. History survey classes. Her most recent position before coming to TAMUQ was at the National Defense University in Washington, D.C., where she taught American studies to international senior military officials and Ministry of Foreign Affairs representatives from over 65 countries. At Texas A&M at Qatar, Dr. Bounds teaches the U.S. History survey courses.

Dr. Bounds’ research centers on U.S. history and how its roots explain current debates in American society. Her dissertation explored the Silent Majority’s reaction to the social movements of the 60s: the response to civil rights, campus liberals, antiwar protesters, racial riots, and women’s liberation by examining written modes of communication from a media-silenced American majority. Her publications include topics on the Civil War, 1960s culture, and counterterrorism.
