In the 2018-19 year, she will be teaching Sex Education: Politics, Policy, and the Production of Knowledge (fall) and Identity, Inequality, and Social Media (spring). Over the summer, she will be teaching When the Princess Saves Herself: Gender and Retold Fairy Tales, and The Human Market: Global Traffic in Human Beings, from Forced Labor to Stolen Cells, here at the Harvard Summer School.
