I teach two undergraduate units (courses) at Western Sydney University, The Racial State and Politics, Power and Resistance. I will also teach Introduction to Culture and Society in 2021, a new first year unit for students studying for the renamed Culture and Society major. At postgraduate level, I teach Understanding Race.
