Teaching

In keeping with my academic interests, I teach courses in political sociology, development, political economy, globalization, health, science and religion, and research methods. My article in Teaching Sociology discusses the use of anonymous secrets as a tool for teaching students about the sociological imagination and analyses students' responses to this resource. I was honored to receive a student-nominated PIE award in 2014 and in 2017 at the University of Wyoming, which rewards teaching in first-year courses as well as a College of Arts and Science "Top Ten Professor Award" in 2017. 

Please contact me for a copy of any of these syllabi or for more information about these courses.
