Victoria E. Bynum



Christopher Paul Cardoza

Ms. Bynum is sponsored by the University of Arizona Honors College

Victoria Bynum is Distinguished Professor Emeritus of History, Texas State University, San Marcos. Her research focuses on Southern dissenters, including families that opposed secession and the Confederacy. Subjects include the guerrilla band headed by Newt Knight in Mississippi's "Free State of Jones"; the anti-slavery Wesleyan Methodist community of the North Carolina Quaker Belt; Southern women who defied the boundaries of Southern society; Southerners who crossed the color line socially and sexually; and African Americans who did not follow the dictates of Jim Crow. Her published works include The Long Shadow of the Civil War: Southern Dissent and its Legacies, The Free State of Jones: Mississippi's Longest Civil War, and Unruly Women: The Politics of Social and Sexual Control in the Old South.
