Teaching Philosophy

I teach with two goals in mind. The first goal is to present cultural anthropology as a conceptual framework through which students can understand and explain historical and quotidian events. The second goals is to provide students with conceptual tools that allow them to make their own connections between abstract theoretical concepts and specific, concrete ethnographic examples.
