Teaching & Pedagogy

HIST368A A History of Asian America, Fall 2022
As a historian and a humanist, I strongly believe in the power of storytelling and how it allows us to overcome the deterministic and reductive temptations of positivist thinking. In my classes, students are equipped with broad theoretical frameworks to assess and answer key historical questions, but they will also learn to complicate these narratives by grappling with a set of multilayered and varied individual experiences across time and space. I hope that by the end of my classes, students will walk away not just with a more emphathetic, crystalizing sense of the worlds surrounding them, but with the ability and confidence to critique arguments, presumptions, and ahistoricity. 

I am therefore committed to a teaching model that promotes rigorous historical learning, relatable examples, and comparative possibilities. I employ diverse assignments and approaches to excite students and to engage them in open discussion, constructive debates, and the cultivation of empathetic values. Lastly, I strive to help students refine their skill set not only to improve their knowledge of history, but also to build a strong foundation for critical thinking and writing.
