    Teaching and Research

    I teach a variety of courses in twentieth century U.S. History, African American History, African Diaspora Studies, and Women’s and Gender Studies. My approach to teaching is deeply informed by my scholarly work. My courses engage multiple disciplines, fields of study, methodologies, and analytical frameworks; interrogate how race and ethnicity intersect with other categories including gender, class, and nationality; and emphasize the centrality of the African Diaspora.
