Teaching Philosophy:

Through the teaching of history, I aim to enable students to evaluate the cultural and social contexts of media and archives, while also encouraging them to consider their own historical positionalities. My goal is to teach students to approach diverse texts, archives, and media through a critical lens. I work to incorporate collaborative and experiential learning into the classroom and ensure that materials challenge both my own assumptions and those of the students, while remaining accessible and engaging. While my courses are rooted in historical approaches, I weave together multiple disciplinary perspectives, and I encourage students to engage with interdisciplinary methodologies.
