Mark S. Ferrara is the author of several books, including Palace of Ashes (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2015) and Sacred Bliss (Roman and Littlefield, 2016). His new monograph considers the implications of making business tycoons heroes in American culture and outlines a "mercantile mind" of greed and desire that is individually, socially, and environmentally destructive.
Ferrara has taught for universities in the United States, South Korea, China, and on a Fulbright scholarship in Turkey. His courses are internationally focused, interdisciplinary, and aim to raise critical insight of other cultures through their literatures.
