Abstract

Enrique Dussel's Etica de la liberación, U.S. Women of Color Decolonizing Practices, and Coalitionary Politics amidst Difference laura e. pérez In its preliminary version this essay was written for a panel at the American Academy of Religion in honor of Enrique Dussel's important and necessary work on the occasion of his seventieth birthday in 2004.1 Given that I am not a philosopher, theologian, or historian, all areas in which Dussel holds degrees and to which he has contributed prominently, and that I was then a newcomer to his work, I could only imagine that I was asked to join the panel of his specialists and collaborators in order to ensure that a U.S. feminist of color and queer-centered engagement with his work was represented.

They apparently knew nothing about the crucial feminist and queer contributions of U.S. women of color to the racial, gender, and sexual civil rights struggles. As
