Wendell Marsh

Assistant Professor

Wendell Marsh’s work is concerned with the entanglement of Islam, Blackness, and modernity in the wake of the Atlantic slave trade and European colonization of Africa. He uses the work of a colonial era Muslim intellectual, Shaykh Musa Kamara, to engage questions of historicity and humanity, the religious and the political, as well as theory and method. Beyond this book project, institutional collaboration is a key part of his work. He is interested in working with art and artists as a way of enhancing the accessibility of public scholarship.
