Fernanda Rodríguez is a philosopher from Mexico City. She has done research on María Zambrano and the philosophy of history. Yet, rather than identifying herself with any author, philosophy tradition or school, her thought develops through the question of history and memory, and their relationship with ethics and politics from a theoretical and rhetorical point of view. Her current PhD project at the University of Murcia is an inquiry into historical experience in the context of the Anthropocene era and the rise of cybernetics. She has taught undergraduate courses on philosophy, rhetoric, and academic writing.

AJ Baginski holds a PhD in Comparative Literature from the University of California, Irvine and previously taught in the Bi-Co Department of Environmental Studies at Bryn Mawr College as Visiting Assistant Professor. Baginski’s research focuses on the contemporary literature and environment of the U.S.-Mexico border, drawing on critical theory and philosophy from Latin America and the U.S. Their work has been published in Chasquí: Revista de literatura latinoamericana, H-Net, Humanística: Revista de estudios críticos y literarios, FIELD: A Journal of Socially Engaged Art Criticism, Yearbook of Comparative Literature and Liminalities: A Journal of Performance Studies. Their manuscript in progress is tentatively titled Exposure, Accident and Violence: Environmental Conditions in the U.S.-Mexico Borderlands. This project argues that twentieth and twenty-first century writers from Northern Mexico and the Southwestern United States have worked to disarticulate the border’s consolidation of gender difference, the concept of race, and ideas of environmental uninhabitability inherited from different colonial traditions.
