My teaching interests lie in gender, sexuality, and reproduction; political and historical sociology; global and transnational sociology; science, technology, health, and medicine; race and ethnicity; and feminist and social theory. As an instructor, I strongly believe that enabling students to link their personal histories with broader social and political contexts is at the heart of an effective education in sociological thinking. Using a variety of teaching strategies, I work with students on achieving four key objectives: developing skills at original sociological analysis, effectively communicating sociological arguments, cultivating a critical sensitivity to diverse learning contexts, and appreciating the relevance of sociological analysis to personal life and multiple career paths.
