I really enjoyed Economic Anthropology with Professor Levine. She is a great lecturer presenting information in an engaging manner often linking economic theory to contemporary situations or discussing her research in Peru without resorting to a powerpoint of holiday snaps! There was frequent engagement in discussion by most students enrolled and attendance was always high - surely a good sign.

Both Professor Levine and her TA's are very fair markers and the questions for class papers are interesting and allow you to pick up marks by showing an understanding of the concepts. Readings were also pretty engaging on the whole.

I would definitely recommend this class and Professor Levine in general - I assume her other classes are equally worthwhile as her lecture style is a lot of fun and keeps you interested throughout.

Prof. Stanish is the worst professor I have ever had, albeit one of the easiest. I could not tolerate his lectures primarily due to his tendency to mumble and go off tangent and start telling us his life story for half an hour at a time. Incidentally I did not learn anything in this class that I found useful or relevant to my life, and by the end I was so frustrated that I switched out of the anthro major. Basically if you manage to go to every lecture and jot down all the little details he mumbles, skim over the readings, and spend some time studying the lecture notes for the two exams, you should get an A no problem.
