TEACHING

As a teacher I emphasize experiential learning both at the undergraduate and graduate level. I think students learn best by doing, whether it is studying cultural memory, analyzing community responses to environmental injustice, or writing a dissertation proposal. While most of the graduate students I have supervised have pursued academic careers, I encourage students to follow their passions wherever that might lead them. At the University of Oregon I am accepting Ph.D students through Indigenous, Race, and Ethnic Studies and the Geography Department. My students and I work together in the Critical Race Lab.  https://criticalracelab.uoregon.edu/
