    Gloria E. Anzaldúa's Autohistoria‐Teoría as an Epistemology of Self‐Knowledge/Ignorance.Andrea J. Pitts - 2016 - Hypatia 31 (2):352-369.
    In this article, I examine the relationship between self-knowledge practices among women of color and structural patterns of ignorance by offering an analysis of Gloria E. Anzaldúa's discussions of self-writing. I propose that by writing about her own experiences in a manner that hails others to critically interrogate their own identities, Anzaldúa develops important theoretical resources for understanding self-knowledge, self-ignorance, and practices of knowing others. In particular, I claim that in her later writings, Anzaldúa offers a rich epistemological account of (...)

    Examining Carceral Medicine Through Critical Phenomenology.Andrea J. Pitts - 2018 - International Journal of Feminist Approaches to Bioethics 11 (2):14-35.
    In "Medicine and Colonialism," Frantz Fanon critically implicates several impasses that arise from the provision of medicine under contexts of colonialism. His essay offers a critical appraisal of medical care in Algeria from the perspective of a health care provider who is himself also subject to racist hierarchies of difference under French colonial rule. Drawing from his experiences as a clinician, Fanon argues that developing trusting relationships of care between patients and providers often becomes nearly impossible under conditions of colonial (...)

    Racial Interpellation and Second-Personhood: Understanding the Normative Dynamics of Race Talk.Andrea J. Pitts - unknown
    In this project, I combine theoretical resources from metaethics and philosophy of language with contemporary issues in critical philosophy of race. Drawing from these literatures, I examine the nature of racial norms by developing a non-ideal, situated, and intersectional approach to second-personhood. Second-personhood, as I propose in the first half of the dissertation, serves two explanatory functions with respect to the nature of racial norms. First, second-personhood highlights how manifestations of moral and political agency are embedded in interdependent forms of (...)

    Trans Philosophy: The Early Years.Perry Zurn & Andrea J. Pitts - 2020 - APA Newsletter on LGBTQ Issues in Philosophy 1 (20):1-11.
    Trans philosophy—like everything else—has a history. The 1990s was a pivotal decade for the academic development of trans philosophy in the United States and Canada. During this period, the broader interdisciplinary field of transgender studies was beginning to emerge, and professional philosophy’s own contributions to transgender studies were starting to take shape as well. In what follows, we hear from Talia Mae Bettcher, Loren Cannon, Miqqi Alicia Gilbert, and Jacob Hale, four trans philosophers whose writings and activism helped provide the (...)
