Bio/Research

Dr. Wendling's research focuses on institutional inequalities, particularly those that are informally, rather than formally, institutionalized.

Her particular interest is in informally institutionalized forms of social inequality such as sexism and racism, in the forms of both discrimination and privilege.

She is also interested in the development of radical egalitarian political thought, beginning with heretical pre-Reformation religious sects, continuing through the development of liberalism in the 17th century, the revolutions of the 18th century, the rise of socialism, the gradual extension of the franchise, abolitionism and the woman's rights movement in the 19th century and into the equality-seeking movements of the 20th and 21st centuries.
