Personal Statement

Personal Statement

I am a political philosopher with diverse interests who cares deeply about teaching.

My research interests center around: care theory; caregiving; family, care, and education policies; feminism; and disability rights. See my "Research Interests" tab for more.

I teach courses on political philosophy and on political issues. I work with pedagogy, techniques, and materials to try to make learning as dynamic and engaging as possible. See my "Teaching: Specialization/Interests" tab for more.

My main "home" at Adelphi is on the faculty of the Political Science Department, where I am currently serving as Chairperson. I am constantly inspired by my colleagues and our students. 

Since the fall 2010 semester, I have served as Director of the Gender Studies minor, an interdisciplinary program.

I am a co-author and co-facilitator of a three-hour workshop, "Gender Bias & Title IX" (with Renaire Frierson, J.D., Adelphi's Title IX Coordinator and Director of Equity and Compliance). The workshop is part of a Diversity Certificate program for faculty, staff and administrators. We have taught the workshop twice a semester since the fall of 2016. Beginning in 2018, we have also conducted this workshop with area public school faculty, staff, and administrators.
