In the Fall, I normally teach what we call the Supersection of PHIL 101, Introduction to Philosophy: Values and Society. Aside from lecturing twice a week, my responsibilities include mentoring and supervising the teaching assistants, who run Friday discussion sections. The course is divided in four units: Philosophy and the Good Life, Moral Theories, Human Nature and the State, Alienation and Oppression. We read texts by Plato, Epicurus, Mill, Kant, Hobbes, Rousseau, Marx, and Iris Marion Young. In 2013, I was awarded the Kathleen W. Klawe Prize for Excellence in Teaching Large Classes for this course. I was also interviewed by the Arts Pedagogy Research and Innovation Laboratory about my approach to teaching large classes. You can watch the interview here.
I also regularly teach a 400-500 level course in continental philosophy. Topics have included Heidegger's Being and Time, Merleau-Ponty, Jean-Luc Nancy, Derrida and Husserl, Heidegger and Politics, among others.
I also sometimes teach PHIL 291, Existentialism and I have taught Phil 392, Topics in Continental Philosophy and Phil 481, Topics in Philosophy and Literature in the past
