Sanford Hall, Room 212 and Zoom (Registration required for Zoom, link below)

Sergio Armando Gallegos Ordorica is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at John Jay College of
Criminal Justice (CUNY). He received his Ph. D from the Graduate Center of the City University
of New York in 2011. His main on-going research project focuses on exploring the various
connections existing between Latin American philosophy and American philosophy (particularly,
pragmatism), with the goal of putting both traditions in conversation so that they can enrich each
other. He is the author of various articles at the intersection of Latin American philosophy and
US pragmatism. In particular, he has published “Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz on Self-Control”
(2020) in Philosophy Compass and “I-representations as mental currency: reading Huw Price
through Andrés Bello” in Transactions of the Charles S Peirce Society. Other recent publications
include two book chapters respectively titled “Decolonizing Mariátegui as a prelude to
Decolonizing Latin American Philosophy'' (2021) and “Mestizaje as an epistemology of
ignorance” (2021) in edited collections published by SUNY Press. He was recently awarded a
Humanities Unbounded Faculty Visiting Fellowship at Duke University for the academic year
2021-2022 in order to write a book on the 17th Novohispanic philosopher and poet Sor Juana
Inés de la Cruz.

The talk will also be broadcast via Zoom. Those interested in attending virtually can register at (registration required):
