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.

Meaningful Academics

The liberal arts remain the foundation of a great education for all FMU students, but we’ve developed an array of professional programs to meet the 21st century needs of both our students and our community.

The Right Size

The University keeps class sizes small because that’s the environment that best facilitates learning. A 15:1 student-professor ratio, and a student enrollment of 4,000 provides the perfect balance to enhance learning and still promote a diverse selection of programs.


Students can walk our lovely, tree-lined campus in about 30-45 minutes, but most take longer because in a place this beautiful, you want to stop and enjoy nature’s beauty.
