I took all three sections of this class, Modernism 1A,1B,and 1C, and it definitely was a hard ass class. It is a requirement for all the art and art history kids so it sucks for us. But Sami definitely is very passionate and knowledgable, and even very funny, This class being three hours long and starting very early in the morning kinda sucked. Sami would have done a lot better if it was an hour thirty minute class, two sections a week. Anyways, I would say the class material is difficult and the tests and one paper is too. I suggest recording the class instead of reading up to 70 pages a week (which is a requirement) and trying to focus for 3 hours straight every class, because the class is too long but everything he says is gold when it comes to exams and papers. Exams are ALWAYS on specific artworks, and he gives out 4 prompts that asks you to compares two artworks from class. If you record the class, you just gotta go look at the part where Sami talks about the specific artworks on the prompt. Do read a little bit for the sake of pop quizzes. He chooses the worst time for them (like the very last class).
Good luck to everyone who has to take this class. I don't really suggest this to people (outside the art and art history department) who doesn't know much about art or does not have much passion on this subject.

His lectures are incredibly boring and long; its almost impossible to stay awake, even though the subject matter is really interesting. He gave us no idea whatsoever what was going to be on tests, and no direction at all on the essay, but he ended up grading both the essays and tests really easy, but I spent a lot of time stressing before I found out my grade. Easy overall, but only because he curves. I got a D- on the test, but he curved it up to an A-.

Loved this class, you can tell Anu is really passionate about art history and while the subject is very eurocentric, they like to focus on indigenous art where applicable and includes a lot of engaging readings each week. The workload is very minimal, all we had to do is choose one of the readings each week and make a discussion post about them. Midterm is just writing about 2 pieces, and there is a short 1000-1500 word paper due week 9, and the final is just identifying 10 pieces and writing a personal reflection. Aside from that, the content of the class is extremely interesting and Anu does a great job of linking to a global scale.
