2015 Workshop

The theme for the summer of 2015 was the work of Sylvia Wynter. Wynter’s work takes up Caribbean, Latin American, and Spanish history and literature. Although she doesn’t identity as a philosopher, Wynter’s work is pivotal in challenging contemporary liberal and Anglo-American feminist framings of philosophy.

Wynter is becoming a prominent theorist within academic philosophy. However, she has published many lengthy essays, and novels, which are extremely dense and intricate. It is our hope that collectively we can come to understand much of Wynter’s work, at a time when it is most pertinent for junior scholars to engage in her project.
