Wendi Manuel-Scott is Professor of Integrative Studies and History and an affiliate faculty member of Women and Gender Studies, African and African American Studies, and the John Mitchel, Jr. Program for History, Justice, and Race at the Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter School for Peace and Conflict Resolution.

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.
