wbstphotoAs of fall 2014 I will be an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the University of Texas at El Paso. I completed my PhD in philosophy in June 2014 at the University of Washington, where I wrote a dissertation titled Immigrant Oppression and Social Justice. My primary research interests are in political philosophy (particularly as it intersects with feminist and Latino/a philosophy), Latin American philosophy and philosophy for children. I am the founding director of the Oaxaca Philosophy for Children Initiative, a non-profit program that provides free pre-college philosophy courses to K-12 youth in Oaxaca City, Mexico in collaboration with the Centro de Esperanza Infantil. I hold an MSc in philosophy and public policy from the London School of Economics and a BA in philosophy from Temple University. As an undergraduate I also studied Spanish literature and philosophy at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Spain. Contact me at amyreedsandoval@gmail.com.
