Teaching

Teaching areas: medical and political anthropology, carceral and critical legal studies, critical global public health, ethnographic methods, aesthetic philosophy and anthropology, psychoanalysis, and postcolonial theory

I currently hold no permanent teaching position. I consider teaching invitations from any university, psychoanalytic institute, or community-based group when extended. Listed below are examples of semester-long undergraduate- and graduate-level courses I have taught.
