Cisneros was an assistant professor of philosophy at Allegheny College for one year before coming to Gettysburg. Her research is at the intersection of Feminist and Critical Race Theory, Contemporary Continental Philosophy, and Latin American Philosophy. Her book project draws from these areas to suggest a new approach to political and ethical questions surrounding immigration. She is also working on a project on prisons and imprisonment that examines philosophical and political implications of mass incarceration in the U.S.
“I love Gettysburg's commitment to promoting engaged citizenship informed by critical thinking and self-reflection. I share this commitment, and I'm thrilled to be in a liberal arts environment where teaching and learning transcend disciplinary boundaries to engage our larger communities and world,” said Cisneros.
