Topic: Series Finale
Monique Logan is a lover of all things living. She is determined to advance the cause of social justice issues to open a lens that aims to help students and adults understand how to redress rhetorics and practices that infringe upon or neglect human rights – racial, environmental, economic, and education. She is a Lecturer in the Department of Technical Communication and Interactive Design at Kennesaw State University and has spent more than 27 years teaching both the traditional college student as well as the adult learner. Much of her scholarship interest focuses on social justice issues, human relations, professional communication, instructional design, and service learning.
She aims to provide writing and research opportunities for current and future students who share her passions to the extent that they engage in ethnography and field working opportunities as a regular, more natural phenomenon -- so that they become experts at making the "familiar strange and the strange familiar," as stated by the late anthropologist Clifford Geertz.
When not engaging with research and readings, she can be found reading poetry or historical records of courageous men and women. Other times you might catch her tending to her home garden, traveling or playing with her grandchildren while sipping on a cool Arnold Palmer.
Pete Rorabaugh is a father, teacher, writer, Atlantan, union member, and a lover of bikes, punk rock, and hip hop.

He teaches first year writing classes focused on the rhetoric of race and class and is working on a book length project that explores the Atlanta Antifascist movement. Pete’s research interests include contemporary American fiction, internet culture, online activism, digital storytelling, grassroots organizing, and anything related to Malcolm X.
Dr. Terry Carter is a tenured Professor of English. He completed his doctoral work in English with an emphasis in Composition and Rhetoric at The University of South Carolina (USC) in 2002; his dissertation is entitled Textual and Personal Representations of African Americans in Composition and Rhetoric.
