Teaching Fellow in the Social Sciences

My research bridges political theory and social history by focusing on the entangled development of global capitalism, empire, and the economic and racial legacies of Atlantic slavery since the late seventeenth century. I hold a PhD and MA in Political Science from the University of Chicago and an MPhil in Political Thought and Intellectual History from the University of Cambridge. My current book project, Factories of Modernity: Political Thought in the Capitalist Epoch, argues that the factory system acted as a decisive yet under-recognized stage for political theory and practice in Britain and the Afro-Atlantic world from 1688 to 1807. At the College, I currently teach in the Social Sciences Core sequence “Classics of Social and Political Thought” and have previously taught in “Power, Identity, and Resistance.” As a Teaching Fellow, I have also taught the Core curriculum at the University of Chicago’s Center in Paris.
