Maria Lugones, one of the premiere figures in feminist philosophy, has at last collected some of her most famous essays, as well as some lesser-known gems, into her first book, Pilgrimages/Peregrinajes. A deeply original essayist, Lugones writes from her own perspective as an inhabitant of a number of different "worlds." Born in Argentina but living for a number of years in the United States, she sees herself as neither quite a U.S. citizen, nor quite an Argentine. An activist against the oppression of Latino/a people by the dominant U.S. culture, she is also an academic participating in the privileges of that culture. A lesbian, she experiences homophobia in both Anglo and Latino world. A woman, she moves uneasily in the world of patriarchy. Lugones writes out of multiple and conflicting subjectivities that shape her sense of who she is, resisting the demand for a unified self in light of her necessary ambiguities. Pilgrimages/Peregrinajes explores the possibility of deep coalition with other women of color, based on "multiple understandings of oppressions and resistances"-understandings whose logic she subjects to philosophical investigation.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Lugones teaches us vigilance, tentativeness, acuity, and playfulness in remembering that we are different selves in different worlds of sense. -- Margaret Urban Walker, Donald J. Schuenke Chair in Philosophy, Marquette University
In Pilgrimages/Peregrinajes, Maria Lugones brilliantly intervenes at the level of meaning by offering a logic of resistance, giving words to what she learned in loving engagement with companion resistors. Asserting that as women of color we cannot stand on any ground that is not also a crossing, Lugones invites us to move across realities, bring our cultures into hybrid life, and shape ground together. Pilgrimages/Peregrinajes is a crucial epistemology of liberation, taking us further in an emancipatory direction. -- Gloria E. Anzaldua, author of Borderlands/La Frontera
Astounding conceptual innovations and distinct conceptual creations. -- Sarah Lucia Hoagland * Off Our Backs: The Feminist NewsJournal *
Maria Lugones's collection has been so eagerly awaited because of the uncompromising clarity with which she captures the suffocating logics of political and conceptual domination and her unmistakable conviction that creative resistance to such suffocation is made possible only in close company with others. Pilgrimages/Peregrinajes provides sustained and deeply loving instruction in how to rethink the very meanings of justice and agency. -- Elizabeth Spelman, Smith College
