Andrea PittsTitle: "Gloria E. Anzaldúa and Crip Futurity in the Americas"

Abstract: Gloria E. Anzaldúa’s writings and life place her somewhat precariously within discussions of both American Philosophy and disability studies. Yet, to borrow a concept from Rosemarie Garland-Thomson, it is precisely due to the “misfit” character of Anzaldúa’s career-long activism, coalition building, and writings that she is an important figure to analyze within these areas of study. Accordingly, to place Anzaldúa’s work in relation to American philosophy and disability critique, this presentation turns to several key concepts from Anzaldúa’s writings that center questions of embodiment, illness, and colonial history in a manner that, I argue, add resources to a queer crip critique of the heteronormativity of institutional medicine across the Americas.
