I believe in creating an atmosphere that empowers students’ imaginations and that enables their abilities to think critically, politically, historically, as well as technologically; one that engages the ways in which historical processes thought to be temporally or spatially distant continue to structure the world. In this way, students are primed to contemplate not only the interactions, but also important distinctions, between race, class, gender, sexuality, physical ability and chronology in ways that integrate their education with the real world.
