Monique A. Gamble


Dr. Monique A. Gamble specializes in the study of U.S. Government and political behavior. Specifically, her interests focus on race, Black LGBTQ culture, and U.S. politics. Her professional vision is inspired by Black feminist scholars’ intersectional work and a lifetime of Black cultural events — from growing up watching the HBCU-based television show, A Different World, to live-tweeting Beyoncé’s groundbreaking visual album, Lemonade. With a finger on the pulse of pop culture and scholarship that utilizes new media platforms like podcasts and filmmaking, Dr. Gamble highlights the links between visibility and representation, politics, and power.  In 2018, Dr. Gamble’s chapter on the visibility of Black women and femmes in Black liberation movements was published in the anthology, Outside In: Voices from the Margins. She has been invited by professional and civic organizations like the National Forum of Black Public Administrators (NFBPA), SOULE LGBT, and the Institute for Politics Policy and History (IPPH) to facilitate discussions at the intersections of race, gender, and sexuality.
