My research, teaching, and museum practice are deeply intertwined pedagogical practices that focus on social hierarchies, identity-based forms of difference, and the visual and expressive cultures of the African Diaspora.

From 2007-2012, I taught courses at Emory University, Dillard University, and Spelman College. The courses included Introduction to Sociocultural Anthropology; Introduction to Feminist Theories; Cross-Cultural Perspectives on Gender and Sexuality; African Diaspora and the World; and “Will to Adorn”: African American Dress and the Aesthetics of Identity.

At Williams College, I have taught a winter study course about art of the Arab Spring and co-taught Image, Imaging, and Imagining: The Brain and Visual Arts. During the spring semester of 2015, I will teach a course about contemporary art of the African Diaspora.
