Bonnie G. Smith is the current Board of Governors Distinguished History Professor at Rutgers University, New Brunswick.[1] Smith attended Smith College, earning a bachelor's degree there in 1962 and later earning a Ph.D from the University of Rochester in 1976. She has since held fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation, the Shelby Cullom Davis Center for Historical Studies at Princeton University, the American Council of Learned Societies, the National Humanities Center, and the University of Rochester.[2]

Smith also designed a project, co-sponsored by the Organization of American Historians, to integrate the study of women into survey courses.[2] She has been on the board of editors of French Historical Studies, a consulting editor to Feminist Studies, and on the board of associate editors for Journal of Women's History.[2]

Her primary focus began with the histories of the French Empire in the post Industrial age. Since then, Smith's research interests concern issues of Cultural Hybridity in the Modern West, Gendering Disability, Women's and Gender History in Global Perspective, Europe in the Twentieth Century World, and Women in World History.
