Teaching

Pedagogical practice:

My teaching approach is rooted in the same feminist commitments that motivate my research: critical and collaborative interrogation of knowledge production and ethical practices through which we understand, produce and unravel the complex and entangled world in which we live. My pedagogical practice has three main objectives:

  1. to provide engaging and collaborative spaces for active and critical learning.
  2. to develop critical thinking through assignments that focus on close reading and creative writing.
  3. to incorporate a diversity of voices and perspectives that broaden students’ academic and social abilities.

Experience:

Currently, I’m teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in the department of Anthropology at GWU.

I also taught lower and upper-division courses in a variety of programs at UC Davis: Anthropology, Women & Gender Studies, American Studies, and Spanish.

  • Volatile Ecologies — Anthropology of Environmental Politics (Undergraduate and graduate course).
