Assistant Professor of Philosophy – John Jay College of Criminal Justice \ The City University of New York

Sergio A. Gallegos Ordorica is an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice.  He is currently working on several projects at the intersection of Latin American philosophy, Feminist philosophy, Philosophy of race, Pragmatism, Philosophy of science, and Social epistemology. In the past few years, he has also devoted attention to the Novohispanic philosopher and poet Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, highlighting in a series of forthcoming and in progress papers her contributions to various domains that include philosophical pedagogy, aesthetics, ethics and moral psychology.

His numerous refereed publications cover topics including Philosophy of Race and Latin American Philosophy, Philosophy of Science, Epistemology, Ancient Philosophy, and Identity. His teaching covers these areas as well as Native American and Indigenous Philosophy, Criminal Justice and Ethics, and Early Modern Women Philosophers.

During his Fellowship Gallegos Ordorica will be collaborating with Andrew Janiak and the Project Vox team, with whom he has been volunteering as an external expert, helping to craft an introductory web entry on the life and thought of Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz (1648-1695), a Mexican ("New Spanish") author of tremendous influence whose work has been neglected by historians of philosophy in the English-speaking world.
