Thavolia Glymph, Associate Professor of African and African American Studies and History and Faculty Research Scholar of DuPRI's Population Research Center

Thavolia Glymph

Having completed Out of the House of Bondage: The Transformation of the Plantation Household (Cambridge, 2008), I turned my attention back to a project begun years before on the experience of enslaved and freed women on the battlefields of the Civil War. This study focuses on the lives of black women and children in Civil War refugee, and labor camps. I am also completing Women at War (under contract with the University of North Carolina Press)and a study of Civil War veterans who served in the Egyptian Army in the 1870s entitled Playing “Dixie” in Egypt: Civil War Veterans in the Egyptian Army and Transnational Transcripts of Race, Nation, Empire and Citizenship, 1869-1878.
