I teach both undergraduate and graduate courses at the University of Chicago.
At the undergraduate level, I teach exclusively in the common core. For many years, I have been the chair of one of the primary sequences in the undergraduate social sciences common core curriculum known as Power Identity and Resistance. The course focuses on close reading of foundational texts in the liberal tradition, as well as core critical arguments against that tradition. I have outlined the general aims of this course in a number of talks to alumni and prospective students and their families. An outline for one of those talks may be found here.
On a graduate level, I teach seminars related to my substantive and theoretical interests. Generally I teach one substantive, middle range comparative seminar and one social theoretically oriented seminar a year. Examples of my graduate courses can be found below.
