Homann is very passionate about African Art, and it really reflects in the way she lectures. They are vibrant and easy to listen to, although she does speak very fast.

What's difficult about her is the participation aspect of her grade - especially in a 60 person class. Plus there are reading assignments.

However, even if a sufficient amount of work is necessary to get a good grade in her class, it is well worth it.

Sadly, she was only her for half the year.

Professor KQ is extremely knowledgable. I took 118C w/ her. She talks really fast and sometimes really low so you'll def need to type notes and possibly also record. She's really funny and knows what she's talking about. Her midterm was pretty straight forward: memorizing slides and writing essays. But she is an extremely tough grader. She expects you to write a lot of clearly thought out information in a very little amount of time. Kind of seems unfair that she expects us to recite everything that she's said in class during the midterm, but she's constantly looking at notes when she lectures us.

Book hasn't been necessary. Doesn't ask to see if you've done the reading. One in class midterm, one research paper, and one take home final. You'll have to go to class and it won't be the easiest A, but you can definitely say you learned something when you leave her class.
