Bio

I have taught courses at the undergraduate and graduate level. My courses include: Intra-Caribbean migration, Latin American migration to the U.S., Race and Revolution in Cuba, the African Diaspora in Latin America, and Cultures of the Caribbean. Whether teaching courses that relate directly to my own research or those that more broadly address key topics in African Diaspora Studies and Cultural Anthropology, I adopt an interdisciplinary, student-centered approach. My primary goals are to: 1) facilitate students' critical engagement with a range of texts, 2) assist them in developing their research and writing skills, 3) expose them to innovative ethnographic methodologies, and 4) provide mentorship. In the classroom, I incorporate techniques designed to use writing as a tool for learning as well as group work and peer feedback to support the development of critical thinking skills.
