Portrait of Emily Gray

Emily Fisher Gray, Ph.D., received dual Bachelor of Arts degrees in history and English from Utah State University in 1996 and a doctoral degree in early modern European history from the University of Pennsylvania in 2004.

She spent three years as a postdoctoral teaching fellow at Pennsylvania University before joining the Norwich University faculty in 2007. Gray has written on the early causes and progress of the Protestant Reformation, the phenomenon of Lutheran-Catholic co-existence, and the unique aesthetics of Lutheran architecture. Her ongoing research takes place in churches, libraries and archives in the former Free Imperial Cities of southern Germany, especially Augsburg, where she lived for a year as a Fulbright Fellow.

Gray serves as the vice chair of the Faculty Senate, the program director for history, and teaches courses in European and world history. Her favorite courses are those that involve elements of immersive role play so students can use course readings to solve historical problems in real time. She also enjoys introducing students to the delights of archival research and the wonders of rare books and objects. She has been instrumental in developing a first-year seminar for departmental majors and an interdisciplinary curriculum for the CityLAB:Berlin program. In recognition of her teaching, Gray received the Homer L. Dodge Award for Teaching Excellence in 2015.
