  • How academics ignore their agency as teachers even as they emphasize their agency as scholars.
  • What it means to seize agency in rebuilding the often-unquestioned structures we have inherited for introduction to IR courses.
  • How to integrate feminist and post-colonial perspectives throughout syllabi not just as one coherent point of view, but as a mechanism for teaching complexity.
