Teaching

 My teaching emphasizes a humanistic approach to learning, in which politics and everyday experiences are interlinked. I therefore encourage students to approach academic texts not as containers of truths but as containers of interventions in search for meaning. At the center of my teaching is a feminist pedagogy, which I bring to the classroom through participatory methods of learning, in order to enable students develop a critical eye to their own assumptions and those of the world around them. I believe that this methodology makes students learn faster and develops their critical thinking as citizens in a globalized world.

I have taught several modules in Belgium, the USA, Democratic Republic of Congo and Burundi.
