About Me

Here are some things that you should know about me.

Kacy Dowd Tillman, PhD

I have had the pleasure of teaching at the University of Tampa for a decade, where I teach courses on early American literature and research-based writing. My research specialities are letters, journals, loyalists, the American Revolution, 18th century novels, and early American gender studies, subjects about which I have published in Early American Literature, Tulsa Studies in Women's Literature, Legacy, and Literature of the Early American Republic. I am the author of Stripped and Script: Loyalist Women Writers of the American Revolution (University of Massachusetts Press, 2019). I am also the co-director of the Honors Program at UT.
