Courses

My teaching is motivated by many of the same issues that animate my research. In particular, students in my courses examine the concrete processes by which certain sciences have become authoritative and their practitioners have asserted and defended their expertise, e.g., rhetorical strategies, invocation of technical instruments, command of esoteric knowledge. I carry this approach into all my courses, ranging from my “Introduction to the History of Science” to my upper-division seminars such as “Technologies as Politics in Early Modern Europe.”
