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

She 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.
