I am interested in examining the meaning and significance of "third spaces" through a critical lens. As an inhabitant of several "borderlands" myself--namely ethno-racial, socioeconomic, and linguistic--I find my own search for meaning inextricably tied to the study and (de)construction of dualities. I am young and have much yet to read, but I have found the most inspiration from the brilliant minds of Gloría Anzaldúa and Walter Mignolo,

Hello Dear, How is everything with you,I picked interest on you after going through your short profile,I have something very vital to disclose to you,but I found it difficult to express myself here,since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on(firstname.lastname@example.org)for the full details.
Dear Jesse: Thanks for joining the Public Philosophy Network (PPN)! An introductory User Guide can be found under the “About” tab. We hope that you find ways to make the site helpful and supportive of your work and interests. While we welcome all members interested in public philosophy, the particular aim of this site is to help develop and support collaborative projects that include philosophers as partners in research and/or social action projects that in some way contribute a public good and/or further public discussion and deliberation.
As we build up the site, we are counting on our members to help us make it a success. Please upload a photo and flesh out your profile. Having a robust and fairly accessible profile allows you to use this site to find other philosophers and collaborators for publicly engaged philosophy projects. It is also very helpful to add searchable keywords in the interest section of your profile so that others with similar philosophical interests can easily find you.
There are two ways to become actively involved on the PPN on-line network: 1) The affinity groups provide members with the opportunity to collaborate around a particular issue within public philosophy; 2) The general forums on the main page are intended to foster “metadiscussions” on issues in public philosophy that cut across specific issues—these discussions may focus on practical or philosophical concerns. If your interests aren’t yet represented, you can also start an affinity group or add a thread to a general discussion forum.
You might want to join some of our affinity groups.
And feel free to start your own affinity group, in which case we ask you to also join the affinity group for affinity group leaders for tips on how to develop a successful group.
Thanks again for joining the network! We look forward to your participation!
