Ivy McIntyre

    Visiting Assistant Professor

    Ivy Farr McIntyre specializes in the history of Early America, South Carolina, and the American South. A native of South Carolina, she earned her B.A. in History and B.S. in Psychology in 2008 from Wofford College. There, she was also named the 2006-2007 Presidential International Scholar, an award given to the “student best able to make a beneficial contribution to humankind.” As a result, she traveled the world for one year, alone, visiting Mexico, Brazil, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Egypt, Poland, Russia, Vietnam, and other countries.

    In 2010, Ivy earned her Master’s degree in History from the joint graduate program at The Citadel and The College of Charleston while working as a National Park Ranger at Fort Sumter National Monument.

    Ivy earned her Ph.D. from Saint Louis University in 2015, working under the exceptional direction of Dr. Lorri Glover, a leading scholar of Early America. Her dissertation, titled “Families in Extremis: South Carolina in the Early Republic,” examines South Carolina families suffering personal crises—isolation, scandal, domestic abuse, financial insolvency, sickness, and death—to test their loyalty to cultural standards between 1790 and 1850.

    Ivy has received research grants from several prestigious institutions, including the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Duke University, and the University of South Carolina; presented at several national conferences; published reviews in the Civil War Monitor and American Nineteenth Century History; and won a prize from the Waring Historical Library for an article published in the Journal of the South Carolina Medical Association.

    When not teaching, Ivy works for Google CS First, an educational team that produces computer science enrichment materials for middle and high school teachers. Free and easy-to-use, these resources help teachers introduce Google applications and basic coding skills to diverse and often underserved students throughout the country and worldwide.
