TEACHING EXPERIENCE
I have currently roughly 500 hours (“lektorstimmar”) experience in front of a class. Of these,
roughly 220 hours are lectures. The remainder is leading seminars. I have taught a wide range
of subjects, in Swedish and English, at various levels at the Universities of Gothenburg and
Warwick. Examples of the subjects taught are:

       The history of political thought (lectures on Aristotle, Hobbes, and Locke)
       The history of democratic thought (lectures on Plato, the Athenians, Hobbes, Locke,
        J.S. Mill, Marx, Schumpeter, Dahl, Held)
       Contemporary political theory (mainly theories of distributive justice [Rawls, Nozick,
        prioritarianism, sufficientarianism] but also multiculturalism, liberty, and
        contemporary democratic thought)
       Punishment (at Gothenburg and Warwick)
       Philosophy of the Social Sciences (at Gothenburg and Warwick)
       Qualitative research methods (small-N design, textual analysis, methods of small-N
        inferences, normative analysis)
       Normative analysis; reflective equilibrium
       Argumentation
       Sustainable development
       Green political theory (mainly climate justice, but also environmental and ecological
        justice)

I have been evaluated separately by students on four different occasions, each time with good
results.

Spring 2004:    Evaluated on three dimensions: pedagogical ability, knowledge, and
                approachability. On a range from 1-5 (with 1 being very bad and 5 being

             from +2 to -2 (with +2 being very good and -2 being very bad) I was rated
