Dr. Matsui teaches both halves of the American History survey as well as advanced courses on the American Civil War, the Atlantic World, and the cultural and religious history of the United States.

Dr. Matsui’s research focuses on the relationship of race and religion to politics in the nineteenth-century United States.  He is revising a manuscript on the politics of Union military occupation policy in Virginia.  His dissertation deals with interracial friendship and popular eschatology in the American antislavery movement during the first half of the nineteenth century.  This research features in recent articles published in Civil War History (June 2012) and Slavery & Abolition (September 2013).  He is active as a public speaker at events commemorating the sesquicentennial of the American Civil War in Maryland and Virginia.
