When I teach philosophy, I strive to provide students with cognitive scaffolding they can use to navigate their individual and collective lives, engage in their own creative projects, and mindfully resist the worst dimensions of a culture shaped by patriarchy, advanced capitalism, settler colonialism, racism, heterosexism, ableism, and other forces. I endeavour to help students develop a consciousness of the power structures that shape their experiences, including the ones which are present in the classroom.
