I teach a broad range of undergraduate and graduate courses in political theory and the history of political thought. In keeping with my research interests, I frequently teach surveys of modern political thought, but I also enjoy teaching ancient political theory. My thematic courses focus on political thinking and writing on political economy, capitalism, democracy, and individuality and sociability.
At Vanderbilt, I won two prizes for undergraduate teaching, including one at the university level, and I was a junior faculty teaching fellow at Vanderbilt's Center for Teaching.
Below is a selection of my current and past courses, with links to their most recent syllabi.
