Introduction to Political Science
My goal in teaching is for students to connect the material from my classes to their other coursework, promoting an integrated understanding of political science as a discipline, and to their lives outside of the university. While few students will become political scientists, they all live in a country with a participatory government that expects and benefits from the engagement of an informed and dedicated public.
Teaching interests: Comparative politics of the Middle East, theories of democracy, religion and politics, religion and gender, ethics
