Academic Work

I recently left my career in academia, where I was a faculty member and advisor in the Department of Political Science at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill There, I raught courses in political theory and ethics, including Feminism and Political Theory, Modern Political Thought, Ancient Political Thought, Democratic Theory, History of Political Thought, a first-year seminar and an advanced undergraduate seminar on Politics and Animal Life.

I was also very proud  to work with the transfer and first-generation student populations at UNC. I taught a special course intended to assist with the transition, give them an opportunity to conduct ethnographic research, and offer insight into how to best navigate the University and make use of resources dedicated to ensuring their success. I am a first-generation college graduate, and I’ve learned a lot from these students, as they come to university with a great deal of life experience and have overcome many barriers–some quite unimaginable to many traditional students–to earn a degree at UNC. They enrich life at Carolina, and they have certainly enriched my own.

Here are some syllabi from courses I have taught:

Democracy: For or Against?

Politics and Animal Life

Advanced Feminist Theory

Classical Political Thought

Politics and Animal Life

Feminism and Political Thought
