Services for Universities, Faculty, and Students

Scholarship and student interest in the field of civil resistance has grown significantly over the last decade.

New quantitative and qualitative research had created leaps in our understanding of civil resistance movements, and courses on this topic are in high demand at the relatively few institutions that offer them.

To help institutions respond to this burgeoning trend, my services include:

Consultations on Curriculum and Program Development

Civil resistance can be studied as a discipline itself, or as an aspect of many other subjects such as area studies, arts, cultural studies, economics, environmental studies, history, law (domestic and international), international relations, peace and conflict studies, political science, psychology, religion, social work, and sociology.

For faculty or departments developing new courses or integrating civil resistance content into existing courses, I can consult on curriculum development and course design. I can further advise on development of new university programs that integrate research and practice.

During my time at the International Center on Nonviolent Conflict, we supported extensive groundbreaking research (here), curriculum development (here), and developed a new publication series (here). I also personally published a wide range of work (here)—from scholarly, to policy- and practitioner-oriented—and served as adjunct lecturer at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy from 2016-2018.

Serving as Adjunct Faculty

I am open to adjunct opportunities that pay fairly for the time and skill required to teach a successful course.

In addition to my work presenting, supporting research, and publishing in the field if civil resistance, I was adjunct lecturer at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy from 2016-2018, co-teaching the course “Civil Resistance: Global Implications of Nonviolent Struggles for Rights and Accountability.”
