Eve Southworth


M.A. Brandeis University

B.A. Connecticut College


Eve Southworth earned her B.A. in History, and Certificate in Arts and Technology at Connecticut College. Pursuing an interest in the relationship between public memory and justice, she then worked as a deckhand and educator with the tall ship Freedom Schooner Amistad — facilitating discussions about the Black-led resistance to enslavement and the legacies of racism and slavery. Committed to justice, Ms. Southworth then served as a legal advocate, trainer, and resource developer with a domestic violence prevention organization.

Ms. Southworth discovered her interest in working with high school students while teaching maritime and Caribbean history on Proctor Academy's Ocean Classroom and semester-at-sea programs. After earning her MAT at Brandeis University, she joined the humanities faculty at the Midland School in Los Olivos, California. There, she taught U.S. and world history, Global Current Issues, and English all with a focus on outdoor and place-based education.

At Exeter, Ms. Southworth is enjoying teaching history with an eye towards issues of justice, human rights, and the environment. She is also an adviser to Model UN and occasionally teaches yoga during Exeter Summer. Outside of the classroom, she can be found hiking, biking, or spending time with her partner, family, and pug.
