Research, Training & Practice
Between 2019 and 2021, I taught Global Perspectives on Society (GPS), together with my colleagues. In this course, we explore a set of recurring questions about how society is, or should be, organized, based on the close examination of diverse thinkers and writers from different time periods and different parts around the world. Over the semester, students develop skills that are central to a liberal education.
