In the Department of Linguistics I teach courses for both undergraduate and graduate students, including morphology, phonetics & phonology, and a course on Old Church Slavic as an introduction to historical Slavic linguistics. For Germanic & Slavic Studies I teach Russian language courses at all levels (most often, Intermediate Russian I and II and advanced courses on special topics) and courses on Slavic culture and identity.
