In this panel, we look to broaden and enrich the professional philosophy of the Americas by illuminating the interconnections of several traditions and places. For professional philosophy of the Americas to have a robust identity it should always return its rhizomic roots that spread across multiple continents and deep into the past.

As one aspect of this process of reclaiming our roots, we explore the intersection and borders of the philosophy of women of North and Central America. Women, and especially women of color, have a unique vantage point and heritage that we believe has often been systematically oppressed and forgotten. Building organically out of discussions in a graduate seminar, these three papers focus on the work of Gloria AnzaldĂșa and Margaret Fuller, and our commented upon by an indigenous heritage philosophy scholar and public intellectual.
