I enjoy teaching courses at the intersection of Political Economy and Critical Security Studies, including those that focus on Asia. My teaching emphasizes histories and theories of global interconnectedness, combining critical political economy with histories of empire, militarism, and struggles for collective liberation. I am also passionate about teaching on space and ideology, geographical theory, knowledge production, and qualitative methods.
See below for limited-view sample syllabi for four of my courses:
Landscapes of Power in Modern Korea
Introduction to Human Geography
The Militarized Pacific: Social Geographies
Theories of Imperialism
I view cultivating a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion in the classroom and on campus essential to my role as a scholar. Inclusive classrooms and student well-being are especially important in the current moment of social and political upheaval and in the context of widespread anti-Black and anti-Asian violence that directly affects many members of campus communities. My courses all address questions of social inequality and identity through topics on race, gender, sexuality, and economic status.
