Faculty

Christian J. EmdenChristian J. Emden
For Christian Emden, teaching and research are closely connected; a class is only really successful when he sees his students thinking independently—often “outside the box”—and matching their skills with recent research in intellectual history and political thought. “Too many courses,” he says, “rely on spoonfeeding textbooks, while students are often most excited when they discover the pertinent research questions by themselves—albeit with some guidance.” »
