One of the most exciting aspects of working in faculty development and instructional design is joining in conversations and exchanging ideas with my peers around the world. To contribute to this community, I publish and present papers at major conferences on pedagogical topics important to me.
- Beginning in September 2022, I will be an assistant professor of instruction in the German department at Northwestern University, where I will teach an array of language and upper-level cultural courses in both English and German, as well as work with other instructors and graduate students on diversifying and decolonizing the department, curriculum development, pedagogical training, and study abroad initiatives.
- In 2020, I published two essays about inclusive teaching, queer pedagogy, and language instruction. For Expanding German Studies, a UK-based initiative to decolonize German Studies, I spoke about my efforts of remaking the curriculum in my own German department using the DEI Database I created and supervisor. For Diversity, Decolonization, and the German Curriculum, a major North American network and platform for anti-racist, feminist, and queer pedagogy and research, I outlined a theory and practice of queer language pedagogy.
- At the 2020 Northeastern MLA, I participated on a panel on LGBTQ+ representation in German Studies, giving a paper on integrating queer and feminist content into language courses.
