Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hello, my name is Eamon! I use he/him pronouns and I’m a senior at Yale studying biology and education studies. I’m originally from Blue Bell, Pennsylvania, a small suburb of Philadelphia, and I have two older siblings. Outside of school, I sing in an a cappella group, I write for the science magazine, and I like making music with friends. Something that not a lot of people know about me is that I love surfing. Recently I’ve started reading for fun, but only cool stuff like poetry and the Harry Potter books. I’m really excited to teach an elective class this fall!

E4425: Photography and Memory in Sprout Fall 2021 (Oct. 02 - 16, 2021)
This lesson is adapted from a class I taught over the summer about memory. Specifically, we are going to start with a quick warm up, do a poll about taking pictures, partner up and explore a photoessay that documents Two-Spirit life on the Pine Ridge Reservation, talk about what photography can reveal about the past, and then discuss how photography can edited (are instagram filters "lying"?), before closing with a reflection.
