Teaching

My teaching generally covers moral and political philosophy, including their histories.

At Queen’s, I convened Animals and Society, a module exploring human/animal relationships from a range of disciplinary perspectives. At York, I convened Analytical Political Philosophy, an MA-level module in the Department of Politics exploring post-Rawlsian political philosophy, and Ethics and Public Policy, an undergraduate module co-taught between the Department of Politics and the Department of Philosophy, under the auspices of the School of Politics, Economics, and Philosophy.

I have been a principle lecturer on the York module Introduction to Political Theory, a large first-year module introducing students to key thinkers in the history of political thought. I delivered lectures on Rousseau, Mill/Taylor, Marx/Engels, Weber, Foucault, and Rawls. I was also part of a team that taught The Politics, Philosophy, and Economics of Social Choice, an MA module for PPE students. In this module, I taught on democratic theory.

I have supervised undergraduate and postgraduate dissertations in philosophy, politics, and international relations. Other modules on which I have taught include Contemporary Political Philosophy (York), Philosophy and the Good Life (Queen’s Belfast), and Philosophy and Human Nature (Queen’s Belfast).
