Bridges, Borderlands, Nepantlas: Gloria Anzaldúa’s Decolonial Philosophy


ACLS Project Development Grants


Multicultural Women's and Gender Studies


This comprehensive analysis of Gloria Anzaldúa’s theories and aesthetics systematically integrates her unpublished writings into an overview of her complex philosophy, thus exploring intellectual developments not found in her published work. Through archival research at the Benson Latin American Collection at the University of Texas at Austin, this project will showcase Anzaldúa’s subversive use of decolonial wisdom traditions and develop an innovative research method for scholars investigating Anzaldúa’s archive or the archives of other queer authors of color.
