As a historian, I have taught the Social Foundations sequence at NYU since 1984. My focus has been primarily on teaching and providing resources for students and faculty: among these are introductions to Ancient Athens, Islam and the Caliphate, and Same-Sex Desire in Ancient Greece. I have also contributed essays to the annual LS/GLS colloquium from 2007-2013. My studies in Byzantine and Hellenistic history have been interdisciplniary: this approach extends to my classes, where students supplement literary texts with visual and other materials.
