My teaching interests lie at the intersection of environmental studies, urban history, and the politics of difference. I like to explore classic and emerging themes in human geography, such as the history and cultural politics of particular ideas of nature, the relationship between landscapes and power, and the politics of urban space.
In the past, I've taught courses and tutored students at San Quentin Prison, through the Prison University Project.
For the 2016-2017 year at UC Santa Cruz, I will be teaching the undergraduate courses: Contemporary Social Theory and Environmental Inequalities, and the graduate seminar, Space and the Politics of Difference.
Previously taught courses:
Globalization: History, Connection, Inequality
California Political Geographies
