Teaching

Against the backdrop of widening inequality and confounding sustainability and health challenges, engaged, critical, and interdisciplinary pedagogy is evermore crucial. I approach teaching and mentoring with three goals in mind: (a) to foster excitement about the material by demonstrating how it speaks to the real world and progressive praxis, (b) to demand critical thinking and writing, particularly on the role of history and ideas in shaping the present, and (c) to create space for multiple ways of knowing and to show that we are better off as a result. Here is a listing of courses taught with sample syllabi.
