Teaching

I teach courses in both political theory and intellectual history. At the University of Chicago, I have taught both the modern and contemporary sections of the “Classics of Social and Political Thought” CORE curriculum sequence on multiple occasions, in addition to serving as a teaching assistant for the ancient, modern and contemporary courses. I also have experience teaching Florentine Renaissance texts and the history of economic thought. Syllabi are available upon request.
