Eduardo Mendieta awarded 2016 Frantz Fanon Outstanding Achievement Award from Caribbean Philosophical Association

Eduardo Mendieta has been awarded the 2016 Frantz Fanon Outstanding Achievement Award from the Caribbean Philosophical Association.

The award is given to “young senior scholar or public intellectual of high repute and global impact in areas of thought and institutional development in the spirit of Frantz Fanon’s revolutionary humanism.”

 Neil Roberts, the President of the Caribbean Philosophical Association, said this of Dr. Mendieta: “Eduardo Mendieta is a prolific thinker working at the intersections of political philosophy and Latin American thought. His prodigious scholarship has contributed to redefining the very nature of critical theory and the intellectual traditions we associate it with. Furthermore, Mendieta’s writings in English and Spanish surrounding critical race theory, prison abolitionism, urbanism, and the philosophy of liberation are ones Fanon would have been proud of. We are delighted at his accomplishments hitherto and look forward to his many future books and endeavors in the upcoming years.”
