The Anzaldúa Speaker Series in Philosophy was officially inaugurated in 2008 to honor Gloria Evangelina Anzaldúa’s life and work by highlighting its unique philosophical significance. The Department of Philosophy together with the ongoing support of the Center for Mexican American Studies at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley invites intellectuals to share their current research, projects and/or to lead workshops with students, faculty, staff and the local and diverse communities to which we all belong.

Our yearly programs celebrate not only the immense influence Gloria Anzaldúa has had across many academic fields, on individuals, and within communities, but also the life changing contributions of a Rio Grande Valley native and alumna of one of our legacy institutions – Pan American University.

All Anzaldúa Speaker Series in Philosophy events are open to the public. If you have any questions regarding the Series, please contact the coordinator Cynthia M. Paccacerqua here.
