Jordan Botello


Jordan is a PhD Student in the Department of Philosophy at The CUNY Graduate Center. His philosophical interests are at the intersections of Metaphysics, Language, Race, Law and Religion. Before that, he was a Talkington Fellow and Graduate Instructor in the Department of Philosophy at Texas Tech University, where he earned an M.A. in Philosophy researching the linguistic appropriation of slurs under the supervision of Christopher Hom. Jordan also taught high school in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. This is part of what fuels his deep commitment to improving pedagogy in higher education. Outside of philosophy Jordan is: a husband, interested in the connection between Latinx identity and Indigenous/Native identity; a fan of the NY stand-up comedy scene; a sneaker-head; an avid reader of history, sociology, and theology; a failed musician; a foodie; and a fan of the Dallas Cowboys and the San Antonio Spurs.
