Program Committee

Megan McGee earned her Ph.D. and M.A. in History from WVU. Her doctoral dissertation focused on 1700s community-building between Native American and German Moravian missionaries in colonial Pennsylvania during the French and Indian War. Her primary research focus has been on control, power, and collaboration in society.

Dr. McGee taught at WVU for several years, offering both on campus and online courses, including for the history department and women’s and gender studies program. An award-winning educator, she focused her teaching on addressing the forces of racism, classism, sexism, and erasure. Students have appreciated her down-to-earth approach to education, using meaningful experiences and humor to make learning especially enjoyable. She developed and taught these two upper-division special topics courses for Native American Studies:
