Dr. Woosley’s main area of expertise is medieval aristocratic culture and medieval justice in the 13th and 14th centuries, but she is also well-versed in Old English and Anglo-Norman literature and culture. She writes about the construction of medieval identity in literature, particularly identities of the emergent middle strata.

She has an article on conduct books and feasting in the Robin Hood ballads appearing in a book collection, New Readings of Medieval Robin Hood Rhymes. She has presented her research at the Medieval Academy and at the International Congress on Medieval Studies.

Dr. Woosley has taught courses on gender and identity in romance, women’s writers, monsters, and the body. She is interested in the post-colonial Middle Ages, justice, history of the English language, technology and composition, neomedievalisms, outlaws and resistance, and medieval women. At FMU, she teaches courses on literature and composition.

Outside of the classroom, she spends her time in Hartsville where she lives with her husband, two small children, Beckett and Isolde,  and her 14 year old Yorkie, Wicket. She enjoys cooking, gardening, and traveling.

PhD, University of Missouri
MA and BA, Southern Illinois University

Affordability

FMU has the lowest cost of attendance of any college in South Carolina, based on rankings from CollegeFactual.com.

Meaningful Academics

The liberal arts remain the foundation of a great education for all FMU students, but we’re developing high-caliber professional programs to meet the 21st century needs of both our students and our community.

The Right Size

No giant lecture halls here. We keep class sizes small and the crowds thin at FMU because that’s the environment that best facilitates learning. A 15:1 student-professor ratio, and right about 4,000 students sound like “just right” numbers to us.

Aesthetics

Students can walk our lovely, tree-lined campus in 20 minutes, but most take longer because in a place this pretty, you have to stop and enjoy nature’s beauty.
