❝The limits of my language are the limits of my world.❞
I have taught German language and linguistics courses at various levels since 2006. I have also taught introductory German literature and two interdisciplinary courses of my own design: One on constructed languages (conlangs) that explored them in linguistic, social, and artistic terms, and also a freshman seminar on (mis)communication, ranging from auditory perception and to national discourses.
Language in Culture and Society
The study of language is inherently interdisciplinary. How we communicate with each other has important implications beyond linguistic research and language education that touch on the history of philosophy, literature & the arts, social attitudes about language, social justice, and language policy.
