Assistant Professor

Faculty Department


JAMIE MYERS MIZE is a historian of American Indians of the Southeastern United States, specifically the Cherokees. She received her BA in history from Truett-McConnell University, her MA from the University of North Georgia, and her PhD degree from the University of North Carolina-Greensboro. Her research focuses on Cherokee masculinity and how gender expectations informed Cherokee men’s political decisions during an intense period of American colonialism in the late-eighteenth and early-nineteenth centuries. Mize is currently working on a project that examines Cherokee masculinity from 1775-1846. This work explores how Cherokee men responded to colonial pressures and how those responses were shaped by social and cultural expectations. She has taught courses on American Indian history, the history of global indigenous peoples, early and modern American history, and twentieth century world history.

We are excited to have Dr. Mize join UNCP's Department of History. She begins teaching for us fulltime in the Fall 2017 semester but will offer her first course this summer.
