I teach in the undergraduate program, Nursing in Context I/II (NURS 190/194), and the graduate program, Theory Development in Nursing (NURS 600) and The Nature and Development of Nursing Knowledge (NURS 502).
Both teaching and scholarship are informed by variety of thinkers. Within nursing the work of Mary Ellen Purkis, Davina Allen, John Drummond, Joanna Latimer, Kristin Bjornsdottir and Sioban Nelson has been influential. Outside of nursing, I am influenced by the writings of Michel Foucault, Chantal Mouffe, John Law, Annemarie Mol, Ingunn Moser, Jeannette Pols, and Carl May – to name only a few. I advocate reading as widely as possible as a good strategy for thinking through the complicated conditions that shape our current practices. Methodological preferences include ethnography, case study research, and philosophical analysis.
