I am a PhD Candidate in Philosophy at the University of Oregon.
For the 2019/2020 School Year, I am also an Andrew Mellon and Center for Environmental Futures Dissertation Fellow.
Forthcoming in the Journal of Speculative Philosophy. This is both a playful and serious paper that uses Derrida's destabilizing liquid logic to theorize and problematize the aqua- or agua-fication (the making less solid) of central and south-american refugees by associating them with water and water metaphors.
I'm honored to be included in Hypatia's Winter 2020 issue, which focuses on amplifying Indigenous and decolonial feminist scholarship.
At the recent Society for the Advancement of American Philosophy, my coauthor Maggie Newton and I recently won an award for our paper, "A/Peracernos:
Rethinking the Multiplicitous Self as “Haunted” with Anzaldúa, La
Malinche, and Other Ghosts."
This piece was published in an excellent collection on the ethics and rhetoric of "invasivity," edited by James Stanescu and Kevin Cummings.
