Teaching Philosophy

My teaching philosophy is informed by my longstanding interest in in how the mechanisms of social inequality have been woven seamlessly into the fabric of daily life. Through my teaching, I aim to help students see and understand how the contours of our own lives are shaped by social forces and how these forces create and sustain social inequalities. By exposing students to new information and diverse perspectives, and by encouraging them to develop critical analytic and literacy skills, I aim to provide them with the tools to become more informed and engaged citizens.
