Approach to Teaching


My approach to teaching may be characterized as a questioning and critical engagement with law and sexuality, and law and representation. My research, writing and pedagogy utilizes theoretical and methodological aspects of critical psychoanalysis, discursive theory and semiotics, and affect theory.
