I teach courses in the fields of art history and visual culture from a transnational perspective. Committed to interdisciplinary inquiry, my courses situate art and cultural production within broader histories and theories of politics, economics, and technology. They aim to cast light upon and interrogate the fundamental structures, assumptions, and archives of the discipline of art history. I teach methods, artworks, texts, histories, and geographies that the discipline has traditionally overlooked, with a special focus on critical approaches inflected by post-colonial, anti-racist, feminist, and queer thinking. 

This fall, I will teach a lecture course called “Modern and Contemporary Art in the Global South” at RISD.

Last fall, I was a Visiting Lecturer at the Experimental College of Tufts University, where I taught a seminar called "Queer Space: Explorations in Art and Architecture." The course was cross-listed in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies and Art and Architectural History.

I have worked as a Teaching Assistant for the MIT courses “Introduction to Art History” and “Modern Art and Mass Culture.” I completed the Kaufman Teaching Certificate Program in 2016. 

I have also developed syllabi for the following courses: American Art in a Global Context; Queer Visual Culture; Modern Art, Health, and Disability; Art and Activism; and The Crisis of Art Criticism: History, Theory, Form.
