Special Issue "New Directions in Latinx/Latin American Philosophy"
A special issue of Genealogy (ISSN 2313-5778).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (1 October 2019).
Interests: Latin American philosophy, Hispanics/Latinos in the US
As Latinx/Latin American philosophy enters what has been called a period of “normalization,” there is a need to take stock of our futures. A few decades ago, it was an urgent necessity to inventory our philosophical history, to recover figures, traditions, and methodologies for the sake of a future we foresaw; a future which is now. Today, the imperative is to affirm the existence and the value of a Latinx and Latin American tradition that has, in the US, been appropriated by Latinx philosophy, and to outline its future trajectory, to establish potential directions for a wide-ranging research agenda that may move Latinx and Latin American philosophy well into the 22nd century. The purpose of this special issue is to bring together work that leans forward in such a way, that gives us current or future “new directions” in Latinx and Latin American philosophy, while remaining planted in its history, it’s genealogy. The scope of the issue will not be limited to one tradition or methodology, but will be open to all traditions and methodologies related to Latinx and Latin American philosophy broadly construed. We thus invite submissions of philosophical work that engages the future of Latinx and Latin American philosophy as this is currently understood.
