Mimi Marinucci completed a PhD in philosophy and a graduate certificate in women’s studies from Temple University in 2000. Currently serving as associate professor of philosophy and women’s and gender studies at Eastern Washington University, Marinucci teaches courses on feminism, philosophy, and feminist philosophy. Marinucci, who is especially interested in the subjective and social aspects of knowledge production, particularly knowledge produced around issues of gender and sexuality, is the author of several articles that employ references from popular in the service of a more scholarly agenda. Examples include “There”s Something Queer About The Onion” (forthcoming in The Onion and Philosophy, edited by Sharon Kaye), “What”s Wrong with Porn?” (in Porn — Philosophy for Everyone: How to Think with Kink, edited by Dave Monroe), “Television, Generation X, and Third Wave Feminism: A Contextual Analysis of a Brady Bunch” (Journal of Popular Culture, Volume 38, Number 3, February 2005), and “Feminism and the Ethics of Violence: Why Buffy Kicks Ass” (in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Philosophy: Fear and Trembling in Sunnydale, edited by James B. South). Marinucci is also the founding editor of Wave 2.5: A Feminist Zine, a two-time Utne Independent Press Award nominee (2005, 2009).
