Sor Juana Inés De la Cruz: Interview with Sergio Gallegos Ordorica

July 1, 2021

In this episode, Haley Brennan talks with Sergio Gallegos Ordorica, assistant professor at John Jay College, about the Mexican philosopher Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz. We talk about how Sergio became interested in studying Sor Juana as a philosopher, how that study can be complicated by a background in analytic philosophy, some of Sor Juana’s views on love, shame, and the self, and how her identity as a Mexican women shaped her philosophy, including her views on how philosophy can be done absent institutional structures.
