Teaching

In the Spring Term of 2016, I am teaching Foundations of International Relations.

I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and an associate of the Philosophy of Education Society of Great Britain.  A major focus of my teaching is on engaging theoretical debates through real-life stories and struggles that are often invisible through the lens of international theory or policy. 

This concern with situated and embodied knowledge production, and with how relations of power shape what counts as authoritative knowledge, also drives my pedagogical practice.  The creation of an inclusive classroom in which students feel able to participate, grow intellectually and challenge their own understandings of power and politics is a priority.

I have previously convened and/or designed courses at BA and MA level on: Conflict, Security and Development; Global Resistance; Introduction to IR; Theories of Development; Political Research Methods and a range of topics related to development, conflict, peace-building and social movements.
