Monique Ferrell, Associate Professor

Faculty Advisor, College Affairs: Video Journalism Club
Faculty Advisor, City Tech Times (City Tech College Paper)
Faculty Advisor, City Tech Dance

Professor Ferrell is a poet and fiction writer. Her poetry, fiction, and scholarly writing has been widely published and anthologized. Both her writing and classroom teaching reflect her interest in matters of race, feminism/womanism, and politics of sexual identity. More than anything, as a professor, she wants her students to examine their place in the global society and to question antiquated paradigms that dictate social, political, and cultural behavior. Dr. Ferrell's course "Women, Violence, and Victimization: The Politics of Womanhood," is part of the City Tech English Department's pending Option/Minor in Gender and Sexuality Studies.

Ferrell's forthcoming third poetry volume Attraversiamo and her short fiction collection Impetus both examine issues of race and gender alongside the pressures and politics of living as a woman in 21st century America.
