I have experience teaching in a research university, a small liberal arts college, and a prison. In teaching I stress the development of habits of critical inquiry and skills of expression that can be put to use across the humanities and social sciences. When designing courses, I also value responsiveness to the particular interests and life experiences of my students. This calls for an open-minded attitude to canon formation and disciplinary boundaries. Finally, I believe that pedagogy should be thought about together with structural issues of education justice.
