My primary goal as a teacher is to spark my students’ intellectual interests and passion for engagement in the most politically salient issues of our times. To do so, I see it as my responsibility to introduce them to the established research on the topics we discuss in class and provide them with the analytical, conceptual, and methodological tools they need to attempt to make sense of the often complex and dynamic nature of politics. Below is a sample of the broad range of courses I teach.
Immigration Policy & Politics
Interdisciplinary Research Methods
Social Movements in the U.S.
Immigrant Rights Activism in the United States
Politics of the Hood: Critical Issues in Urban Neighborhoods
Ethnic Studies & Social Movement Theory
