Teaching

Teaching is a central part of my intellectual life. My experience comes from US universities (NYU, Columbia), a wonderful women’s liberal art college (Barnard), UK Universities (Oxford, UCL), and prisons.

Besides various topics in ancient philosophy, I taught: metaphysics, logic, philosophy of language, philosophy of logic, philosophy of mind, epistemology, Kant, history of ethics, introduction to philosophy, and freedoms. At Trento’s prison, I regularly teach Philosophical Dialogues and Citizenship. Next term at UCL I'll teach Modality: Linguistics and Philosophy (with Angelika Kratzer) and Truth in Plato and Aristotle (with Michael Peramatzis and Luca Castagnoli). I am also planning a course on Issues around Race and Gender.

When possible, I integrate standard teaching methods with less standard ones. These include puppet shows (for Introduction to Ancient Philosophy) and film-making assignments (for Freedoms, a first-year seminar at Barnard).
