Professor Shonni Enelow on Mina Loy, in the Observer

March is Women’s History Month. In this three-part mini-series, Fordham College at Lincoln Center's newspaper, The Observer-- interviewed FCLC professors about the female figures who inspired them. This last and final week, The Observer featured Assistant Professor of English Shonni Enelow speaking on British poet and Futurist Mina Loy.

Loy is well known for breaking through the masculine-dominated world of Futurism, a movement during the early 20th century that celebrated avant-garde and contemporary notions like technology and machines, ideas and subjects that were not readily talked about during that time.
