The experiences of academic women of colour in geography have not been discussed in detail in our discipline. While we have witnessed an gradual increase in the literature about women of colour within feminist geography, transnationalism, and diaspora studies, among other subfields, we have yet to thoroughly explore how geography's historical engagement with colonialism and imperialism work to ensure the continued domination of whiteness among faculty and students within geography. This special issue brings to light the experiences of some women of colour who research, teach and work within the discipline of geography, suggesting some future avenues for more emancipatory geographies within the academy. Cuestionando la Torre de Marfil: Proponiendo geografías antirracistas en la academia Las experiencias de mujeres académicas del color en la geografía no se han discutido con todo detalle en nuestra disciplina. Mientras hemos presenciado un aumento en la literatura acerca de mujeres del color dentro de la geografía feminista, transnationalism, y los estudios de diáspora, entre otro subfields, nosotros tenemos mas examinar cómo compromiso histórico de geografía con el trabajo del colonialismo y el imperialismo para asegurar la dominación continuada de la blancura entre la facultad y estudiantes dentro de la geografía. Este asunto especial revela las experiencias de algunas mujeres del color que investiga, enseña y trabaja dentro de la disciplina de la geografía, sugiriendo algunas avenidas futuras para geografías más emancipadoras dentro de la academia.
