I have taught courses on anthropology, religion, and social science in an interdisciplinary liberal arts division at Babson College and in the anthropology department at Brandeis University. These courses introduce students to the fundamentals of anthropological thinking and provide a breadth of exposure to multicultural expressions of religious, political, economic, medical, and social life.
Foundations of Critical Inquiry (First-Year Introduction to the Liberal Arts)
From 2014 to 2018 at Brandeis University, I taught a year-long writing course for the Myra Kraft Transitional Year Program. Below are the syllabuses I developed, as well as additional pedagogical resources and links. Each nine-month course is divided into two parts: a first semester taught in the fall and a second taught in the spring, each with the same students and both of which develop similar themes yet allow students to explore different genres of writing.
During the 2017-2018 academic year, I received funding to inaugurate Brandeis’s Workshop for Critical Inquiry and Education, an interdisciplinary venue that showcases exciting works-in-progress to support the writing curriculum.
