    Mimi Marinucci joined the faculty in 2000. She came to EWU from Temple University in Philadelphia, PA where she completed a Ph.D. in Philosophy and a graduate certificate in Women's Studies. She has a joint appointment, and her time is therefore split equally between Philosophy and Women's & Gender Studies. She was promoted to full professor in 2011. Marinucci is a past recipient of the EWU President's Award and Professor of the Year award (2011), as well as a U.S. Professors of the Year nominee (2012), and she was awarded the Best of the West Plains EWU Teacher of the Year (2012). Her teaching and research are focused on feminism, philosophy, and feminist philosophy, particularly as represented in popular culture.  She is especially interested in popular culture as a medium for the production and dissemination of knowledge about who we are as women and men. In addition to a number of published articles, Marinucci is also the author of the book Feminism is Queer: The Intimate Connection between Queer and Feminist Theory (Zed Books, 2010). She is also the founding editor of "Wave 2.5: A Feminist Zine," a two-time Utne Independent Press Award nominee (2005, 2009).
