Dr. Wendi Manuel-Scott is an Associate Professor within the School of Integrative Studies and the Department of History and Art History. She graduated from the College of Charleston where she received a BA in History and then received her Ph.D. from Howard University in History. Dr. Manuel-Scott’s research and teaching focus on how the past – New World slave systems, Jim Crow-era segregation, corporeal systems of incarceration, patriarchal cultures, and anti-black racism – shapes our modern understanding of freedom and liberatory movements for justice. Both in and outside of the classroom her approach is to show students that history is relevant to their lives regardless of their chosen major, professional interests, or future activities. Dr. Manuel-Scott strives to support each student’s journey toward becoming a more culturally responsible and better-informed citizen of our increasingly interconnected world.
