For three years I taught graduate-level courses for students at Oxford’s School of Interdisciplinary Area Studies and supervised Masters-level extended writing projects and a thesis; in 2017 I also supervised a graduate study course at the University of Chicago. Between 2012 and 2015 I also regularly provided small-group and class teaching for undergraduates from several different Oxford colleges and for visiting students from Sarah Lawrence College. This experience is summarized below.
I am also a firm believer in academic service (and, as a scholar of bureaucracy, it’s always great to get a look from the inside). Between 2011 and 2015 I sat on the steering committee of All Souls College, sat on hiring committees, and for three years also served as secretary to the governing body. I was particularly proud to sit on an Equality and Diversity Working Committee assembled in 2013 to help make the College a more inclusive place, and to lead outreach events for less traditional applicants between 2010 and 2014. In my years at Oxford I also co-convened four seminar series and four conferences. At UChicago, too, I have become a member of the Committee on Southern Asian Studies, co-convener of the flagship South Asia Seminar (2016–2018), and am running a series of conferences and seminars on climate policy. I look forward to continuing this commitment to service as a full-fledged faculty member.
