I teach courses in feminist philosophy at all levels, and on figures such as Simone de Beauvoir, Hannah Arendt, and Judith Butler. In 2013, I received the William’s Council Distinguished Teaching Award, largely for my work teaching 340 undergraduate students each year in my Philosophy of Love and Sex course, a very popular large lecture course which I teach each spring [link to William’s Council Award announcement and Emerald Article about Love and Sex course].  At the graduate and advanced undergraduate levels I teach a variety of courses that are designed to help students think about gender, sex and sexuality often in relation to questions of ethics, social justice, politics and power.
