At Harvard, I have taught ancient and medieval political thought, democratic theory (for which I won a teaching award), and ancient Greek (in a private capacity). I have also worked as a teacher of English as a foreign language in China and Malaysia, and as a teacher of reading with struggling teenagers at my former high school in Manchester, UK.
My academic teaching interests, like my research interests, span the range of ancient and modern intellectual and institutional history and political thought. In particular, I am keen to teach ancient Greek political philosophy, Athenian political institutions and ideas, Roman political institutions and ideas, political thought of the English, American and French revolutions, seventeenth- to nineteenth-century British, American and European and political thought, the history and theory of constitutionalism, and democratic theory. I also look forward to teaching seminars on individual thinkers such as Plato, Aristotle, Hobbes, Locke, Hume, Rousseau, Hegel, and Marx, among others.
