Teaching Statement: To live in the world is to interpret cultural productions, interpersonal relationships, and activities such as work, study, and play. In the teaching and practice of humanistic studies, I hope to enable students to better examine their place in the world and the materials that they create and to which they are exposed, from art and social media to advertisement and political discourse. By working and discussing together, we can learn to ask questions about the power we exercise and that which is exercised upon us.
