I have had the privilege of interacting with a diverse body of students over the course of my six years of teaching. My goal is that students leave my courses better informed and equipped to negotiate and influence their futures.
I have taught at Amherst College, UNC-Charlotte and University of Florida. In addition to teaching I have advised undergraduate theses and worked with research assistants.
"The Photograph" examines photography as a social actor and truth teller. "Faraway Places" cuts across histories of scientific expeditions, colonialism, pilgrimage, migration, trade and tourism, to begin to think about what it means to travel and how it has impacted identity, language, place, space, and time. "Science & Society" focuses on the role scientific practices and technologies play in cultural production. "Latin American Nations" builds on histories and anthropologies of Latin America to understand its complex production since independence. I have also taught "Ethnographic Film", "Politics of Humanitarian Aid", and "Introduction to Museums." I am developing am course Latin American feminisms and another on writing, women & ethnography.
