Autocrats of the World: International Politics of Authoritarianism

I taught this course at the University of Toronto, Mississauga in Fall 2021 as a course instructor.

In each course I teach, I ask my students to generate memes based on what we've covered in class at the end of the term. It's fun! Here are some memes from my autocracy course, though I cannot share them all for security reasons...#AcademicChatter #AcademicTwitter #polisci pic.twitter.com/n4mlxRMFVE

Politics in the Middle East

I taught this course at the University of Toronto, Scarborough in Fall 2020 and 2021.

My dearest @studentsofmena continue with their discussion after lecture on @discord. I am fascinated by the depth of their analyses. For some of them, this is their first exposure to #mena politics. Yet I think they are doing way better than so-called MENA experts on TV!

TAships at the University of Toronto

I’ve been serving as a teaching assistant at the University of Toronto since 2017.

Maybe I can't serve baklava in my virtual office hours, but I can put a picture of it. Because, why not? #AcademicTwitter #AcademicChatter @UTSC_PolSci pic.twitter.com/mgy5nIlCmj
