Teaching

I have experience teaching at a wide variety of institutions including research universities and small liberal arts colleges. I have also taught interdisciplinary courses as well as an online curriculum. My teaching stresses developing skills of critical inquiry and analysis that can be put to use across the humanities and social sciences. In my pedagogy I believe it is especially important to be sensitive to issues of diversity and I encourage inquiry into the structural bases behind inequality and racism in Western societies.
