Teaching

Since 2002 I have taught a wide range of undergraduate courses. Below, I list those from recent years that most represent my current teaching and research interests in the environmental humanities and American literature. In addition to the courses listed here I have taught survey American literature, Rhetoric and Composition, and a number of general literature courses. Courses were taught at New York University, Rutgers University, UC Santa Barbara, and the University of Illinois (Urbana-Champaign).
