PHIL 322 Latinx Philosophy

This course examines philosophical reflections on the Latinx experience, focusing on the contributions of US philosophers of Latin American decent. A sample of questions to be considered: What does it mean to be authentically Latinx? Is Latinx identity a racial, ethnic, or political identity? What are some of the overarching lessons of Latina feminist philosophy? Are Latinxs, particularly immigrants, a threat to “American” values, as some argue? What is the meaning of “Latinx” and why is the “x” important? Is Latinx philosophy unique, distinctive, valuable?
