In addition to my experience researching and implementing museum education programs, I’ve served variously as an instructor and teaching assistant for the past 4 years at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. Most recently, I redesigned and taught an introductory lecture course on Folklore that introduced students to theories of vernacular expressive cultures and exposed them to ethnographic practice through documentation projects. One of those projects resulted in an online exhibit on the NC State Fair.
In 2015, I worked in a curricular support position at UNC, helping instructors conceive and implement digital humanities projects in their courses. In addition to pedagogical interests in Social and cultural history, Folklore, Digital humanities, and American studies broadly, I’m also particularly interested in teaching classes on spatial and environmental history from a multidisciplinary perspective. You’ll find syllabi and teaching materials for my classes American Environments, Introduction to Folklore, and Introduction to Digital Humanities below, and linked from the menu above.
