In addition to teaching courses in the English Department at Boston College, I am committed to exploring pedagogy questions in a group setting. I previously served as the co-director of the department’s PhD student Pedagogy Seminar. In that role I arranged seminars with student and faculty presenters on topics including “Teaching Literature Core and Beyond,” “Finding Your Teaching Persona,” and “Balancing Teaching with Research, Writing and Service.” I also created and compiled a website that showcases the work done by First Year Writing instructors at Boston College and provides sample syllabi, assignments, and handouts for future graduate student instructors.
During the 2016-2017 school year, I taught two undergraduate courses at BC:
- First Year Writing Seminar: Writing & Pop Culture (syllabus)
- Literature Core: Literature & Adaptation (syllabus)
During the 2017-2018 school year, I will be teaching the following undergraduate courses:
- Shakespeare: Potentiality and Performance
- Literature Core: Queer Drama
