Xhercis Méndez is an Assistant Professor in Philosophy and African American and African Studies. She received her doctorate from the Philosophy, Interpretation and Culture Program at Binghamton University, along with certificates in Feminist Theory and Latin American and Caribbean Area Studies.  As a scholar-activist her research departs from engaged philosophy that centers those bodies systematically devalued, marginalized and targeted for demise.  Her work brings together Women of Color and Decolonial Feminisms, Sexuality Studies, and Afro-Latinx/diasporic Religion and Philosophies in order to develop decolonial feminist methodologies, ingredients and tools for the (re)making of social relations, histories, intimacies, normative value systems, and resistant possibilities.
