Teaching

For the past several years, I have taught a range of courses in the fields of United States 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.

At Princeton University, I was a Preceptor in the Department of American Studies. As a part-time instructor in the Department of History at The College of New Jersey (TCNJ), I taught courses on African American History since 1865 and African American Women’s History, and developed a new introductory course on Civil Rights and Black Power. In addition, I have taught several summer courses for high school students in the Princeton University Preparatory Program (PUPP), Community House (CH), and the W.E.B. Du Bois Scholars Institute.

At the University of Iowa, I taught a range of courses in the Department of History including a graduate course on 20th c. Black Internationalism and an undergraduate course on Race and Politics in U.S. History. At the University of Pittsburgh, I offer undergraduate and graduate courses in African American History and African Diaspora History. Please note that I am currently on research leave and will not be teaching courses during the 2018-2019 academic year.
