Teaching

LEIDEN

I haven’t started teaching yet! I will teach a Master’s Seminar this winter entitled States, Citizens, and Migrants. Other classes TBD.

OXFORD

As Clayman Junior Research Fellow in Politics and Political Ideas at St Anne’s College, Oxford (2014-2017),  I tutored for the Honor School program in Philosophy, Politics & Economics (PPE). I offered tutorials on two papers “Theory of Politics,” and “Theorizing the Democratic State”, and offered revision tutorials on “Political Thought: Bentham to Weber.” In 2015, I offered an optional paper, “Normative Orders: Legitimacy in the 21st Century,” which focuses on critical approaches to political theory.

In addition to tutoring in college, I acted as an exam evaluator in the Oxford Department of Politics and International Relations (DPIR). I also evaluated several MPhil Theses and Research Design Proposals (both for Theory of Politics as well as International Relations). Because of my specialization in Critical Theory, and 19th and 20th Century European Political Thought, many of the MPhil Evaluations focused on sovereignty, identity, recognition and agency, especially as applied to questions of migration, the rise of new populism, and mobilization on the Left.

YALE

Prior to coming to Oxford, I was a Teaching Fellow in Political Theory. In 2009, I taught for Professor Steven B. Smith’s Introduction to Political Philosophy, which focused on canonical authors such as Plato, Aristotle, Machiavelli, Rousseau and Tocqueville. In 2010, I taught for Ian Shapiro’s Moral Foundations of Politics, which mixed classical texts (Locke, Mill, Marx) with more contemporary political theory (Rawls, Nozick, MacIntyre).
