Teaching

I teach a wide range of courses in the Department of English at Trinity University. My areas of teaching include Shakespeare, Renaissance literature, drama, poetry, fables and fairy tales, translation studies, and gender and sexuality studies. In Fall 2018, I am teaching the early British literature survey, a cross-listed English and Women’s and Gender Studies seminar entitled “Nasty Women in Medieval and Early Modern Literature,” and the writing workshop portion of the “Great Books of the Western World” first-year experience course.

In addition to teaching undergraduate and graduate courses English at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, I directed the MA in English program and co-directed the Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies program. I also worked with a number of student researchers on a digital scholarly edition of Jorge de Montemayor’s Diana and hosted the Hispanic Shakespeare Symposium in February 2017. In Summer 2017, I co-led a study abroad program in Scotland, which I wrote about on my blog.

During my time at NYU, I taught in a number of capacities. In the Department of English, I was both a primary instructor and teaching assistant for the early British literature survey and Shakespeare courses. In my role as a Postdoctoral Teaching Fellow in the College Core Curriculum, I was part of the teaching team for two humanities courses that examined a wide range of literary and philosophical texts across historical periods. As a part-time member of the faculty of the Gallatin School of Individualized Study, I taught first-year interdisciplinary writing and research courses on topics such as translation and homeland. I also taught a weekly writing workshop for Gallatin students in the New York State Higher Education Opportunity Program.
