Dr. Chappel Traylor teaches a range of American Literature courses in the Department of English and Philosophy and is core faculty in the Ph.D. Program in Heritage Studies, where she teaches Concepts of Culture (a cultural theory seminar focusing on race, social class, and gender), Southern Literature and Culture, and Popular Culture. She also directs honors theses and doctoral dissertations, as well as independent studies. She is currently serving as Interim Associate Dean of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences.
Away from campus she has a busy personal life, married to Dr. Wm. Maurice Traylor and raising twelve-year-old grandson Timothy Traylor, baseball player and Xbox gamer extraordinaire. Her daughters Libby Harmon and Amy Oswalt and son Chris Traylor and three other grandchildren (Zachary Oswalt, 9; Kendall Grace Harmon, 2; and Katy Oswalt, 1) are a huge part of her life as well (if you drop by her office, you can't miss their pictures). She loves travel, reading, gardening, and big family get-togethers at her home in Marion (yes, she commutes every day).
