Why I wanted to teach this class

This course is especially exciting for me because studying the production of "difference" will take us through embodied, emotional, and intellectual explorations.

Fun fact

My alter ego is a baker.

Why I Wanted to Teach This Class

The courses that I am most excited to teach are those that synthesize and interrogate questions of identity, representation, and performance and that integrate critical and creative inquiry. I am especially eager to explore what it means to think through difference with students in the course and look forward to carrying out our examinations and analyses using multiple disciplinary perspectives.

Fun Fact

I, like so many others, thoroughly enjoy the musical Hamilton and have, to date, been in "the room where it happens" five times.
