I consider teaching a space to take students’ life experiences seriously, and to give them the tools to intervene in the hierarchies of power in their everyday lives. As a medical anthropologist and humanities scholar of science and technology, my teaching aims to curate diverse materials and bring them to bear on the global politics of knowledge production. Further, I consider it my job to bring students into conversations with new voices, not only through the texts they read but through facilitated action together with local communities toward mutually beneficial ends.
My pedagogy is especially influenced by feminist scholars including Kimberlé Crenshaw, bell hooks, Elizabeth Ellsworth, Jerrie Cobb Scott, and others.
