Teaching

 

As a postdoctoral fellow at Notre Dame, I served as co-instructor, with Michael Zuckert, of a graduate course on Hobbes and Spinoza. At Bowdoin I  taught eight different courses, including two first-year seminars, and intermediate- or upper-level classes on topics such as: classical political philosophy, American political thought, Medieval Christian and Islamic political philosophy, liberalism and its critics, modern political thought, and the legacy of Roman republicanism. At Duke, I am currently teaching a course entitled Left, Right, and Center.
