Teaching Experience

My teaching interests include themes of conversion, material culture, gender, and authority with an emphasis on the diversity and exchange of lived religious practices in the everyday lives of both women and men from the late Roman Empire to the Enlightenment. As a visiting assistant professor in the Boston College History Department, I teach classes in both halves of the university core survey courses in history: on medieval and early modern Europe focusing on economic, religious, and cultural exchange between Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Americas, and the modern history of the Atlantic World focusing on race and religion. While completing my Ph.D. at Boston College, I co-taught courses in the core program and have also taught specialized digital skills in photogrammetry in an advanced undergraduate course on the history of Boston and material culture. I also have years of experience in individualized undergraduate tutoring and writing instruction, secondary education, and public history as a former seasonal park ranger and historical tour guide.
