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 hold no permanent teaching position. I teach as contingent faculty and consider teaching invitations when extended.
