Scott, Dr. Terry



Terry Anne Scott has taught history at Bellevue College since 2010.  She is an assistant professor of History at Hood College in Maryland. She previously worked as a lecturer at the University of Washington where she was nominated for a distinguished teaching award.  Dr. Scott earned her Ph.D. in History at the University of Chicago, where she was awarded the Trustees Fellowship.  She received her undergraduate degree in History at Arizona State University, and graduated with distinction from Southern Methodist University with a Masters Degree in History.  A native of Chicago, professor Scott’s research focuses on race, urban history, sports, and the South.   She is currently completing two book-length manuscripts.  The first explores how lynching, once a strictly punitive and largely clandestine form of political and labor domination, evolved into publicly viewed, well-attended, frequently commercialized exhibitions of racial violence.  Her second manuscript examines the genesis and defense of racial homogeneity in white Dallas, Texas neighborhoods.  Dr. Scott has also worked on multiple public history projects, including an investigation of Freedman’s Cemetery, a 19th century African American burial ground.
