Political science and political theory are dependent upon diversity.
My particular vision of good teaching relies on the fact that other faculty may approach teaching differently than I do.
In my classes, good teaching looks like political theory.
I begin with the assumption that what we are covering in class is already familiar to my students.
Our task is to first figure out what is familiar in our shared texts and then to render that familiar concept uncanny and unfamiliar by virtue of a self-consciously skewed perspective.
