Teaching Vision

 As a teacher of politics, I see my task as creating spaces for students to frame both a normative and empirical foundation for dealing with questions of power, justice, identity, equality, and freedom. I am interested in developing students’ capacity to argue cogently, persuasively, and synthetically, as well as teaching them about the state of the art research in the field, employing both qualitative and quantitative methods.
