 Amy Feely Morsman came to Middlebury in the fall of 2001.  A native Virginian, she earned her degrees from Wake Forest University and the University of Virginia.  She teaches courses in American History, primarily around the topics of the Civil War and women's history.  Her research interests lie in the historical evolution of gender roles, race relations, and regional differences.  Her first book, The Big House After Slavery: Virginia Plantation Families and their Postbellum Domestic Experiment, was published by the University of Virginia Press in 2010.  She is working on a new book project that focuses on race relations and the legacy of the abolition movement in the postbellum Northeast.

Morsman has served three years on the college's Faculty Council and is currently elected to the Educational Affairs Committee.
