I am an experienced teacher and have taught a wide range of courses in gender and sexuality studies, global history, and US cultural history. Much of my research is about the reproduction of power; I teach in a way that subverts that reproduction through transparency and situating my classroom in the broader world. I emphasize inclusion with my students—I believe that their backgrounds are assets in their pursuit of knowledge.

I have taught workshops on implementing feminist grading praxis in the classroom, and most recently won the Wise Woman Award for Feminist Teaching at TCU.

Sample Courses:

Arab Americas: Race, War and Diaspora

Sexuality, the Body and the Border

Race, Gender, and the American Film Musical

Introduction to Ethnic Studies

Gender and Sexuality in a Connected World

US Cultural History 1865-today

Transnational American Studies
