I took IDS 191-Disaster Capitalism in the summer 2009. I really enjoyed the class but the midterm was very confusing. I think the seminar format is a great idea and really got all of us to read. However, the lecture left me a little ill-prepared for the mid-term. (Most of the other students did really poorly, too.) It was disappointing because the subject matter was really interesting. By the end of the course I think that most people had a good grip on the general ideas introduced in the class. Some students struggled because she is demanding in the 191 classes because it's a SENIOR SEMINAR! We were asked to do a fair amount of reading and then do analysis. She asks every student to share original ideas, based in the readings, EVERY time you meet. It's not hard work but one is asked to stay on top of it. Be prepared to do a bit of work and thinking. With all of this is mind, Prof. G is very fair and not out to get anybody in a bind. Meet with her in office hours, find a study buddy and talk about the class. Lectures are a bit "stream of consciousness" but nevertheless interesting and engaging if you're interested in the subject matter. If not, don't take this class. You'll suffer.

this class is AMAZING! it was a small seminar class, about 17 students, and each week the class was taught by US! the class was about college campus life and it was really fun. we talked about dorms, romance, facebook, suicide, etc. the book we had to read was interesting (about a prof who pretended to be a student lived in the dorms).

since it was a small intimate setting, we all knew each other pretty well by the end and it's pretty easy if you go to class and do your projects.

TAKE IT.
