In my teaching, I have two main goals. The first is to nurture students’ curiosity and understanding of the world around, in particular the changing economy and natural environment (and of course the intersections between these two!). The second is to help students develop critical thinking, communication and research skills that will enable them to achieve their academic and professional goals. Teaching the motivated and intellectually open students at Carolina has been an absolute delight. Here’s a list of some of the courses that I teach.
Geog 130: Global Development and Inequality
Geog 435: Environmental Politics
Geog 460: Geographies of Economic Change
Geog 804: Property and Resource Control
Geog 805: Theory and Practice of International Development; Entanglements with Nature
