The Department of Philosophy at Texas A&M University cordially invites you to attend the First International Conference on Pragmatism and the Hispanic/Latino World.


(1) The conference will demonstrate the growth and vitality of the field of “American” Philosophy, broadly conceived to include North American and Latin American Philosophy. It seeks to foster a Pan-American dialogue in Philosophy in a new and promising area of research and teaching in Philosophy;

(2) The conference fills a void in research in the humanities and will challenge traditional canons of scholarship. Delegates to the conference will argue that the unique contributions of Hispanic philosophers to the history of Pragmatism have yet to be reckoned, much less appreciated, and that Pragmatism offers tools and resources for solving contemporary social, ethical, or political problems experienced by Hispanics in and outside the United States;

(3) The conference will stimulate further research, translations, and international collaborations. The Inter-American Philosophy Review, a new on-line Journal created to foster Inter-American philosophical dialogue, has expressed interest in publishing articles based on the papers presented at the conference;

(4) Hispanics/Latinos comprise emerging populations on American college campuses, and these students will become increasingly interested in studying philosophy if they are encouraged to learn how Hispanic philosophers have appropriated and modified the central insights of American pragmatism.

The conference will feature invited speakers from Mexico, Cuba, Brazil, Peru, Uruguay, Colombia, Argentina, Spain and the USA. In addition, six submitted papers will be selected through blind review. See below instructions for the call for papers.
