Dr. Moira Fitzgibbons

Professor of English


Working at the College enables me to collaborate with great students and colleagues and to wander happily around words (who or what is the luke in lukewarm? Where did ampersands come from?). My first-year and advanced-level courses engage with medieval texts and culture, comics, disability studies, and the history of the English language. My interest in learning, texts, and creativity have also led me to serve as a faculty co-advisor to Mosaic, the College’s student literary and visual arts journal; as Vice President of the Poughkeepsie Public Library District Board of Trustees; and as a member of several scholarly advisory boards.

I love exchanging ideas with students about the rich and varied forms of literacy we all use every day. Stop by my office and let me know what you’ve been reading, thinking about, and creating lately!
