I teach courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels in the areas of the history of political thought, American political thought and philosophy, theories of democracy, activism and disobedience, theories of violence and nonviolence, and contemporary political theory. In addition to supervising graduate student research, I advise undergraduate students writing theses in the Government Honors Program on topics related to my areas of expertise.
