I don't know what everyone's complaining about. I took her this quarter, and to be honest-- yes she has a tendency of saying um's and what not, but after a while, you get used to it.

She is EXTREMELY friendly during office hours- and very very approachable. She smiles and even though not the funniest jokes, the effort is noticeable.

The reading load is really not that bad--and unlike other classes it's quite interesting actually.

The TAs can be difficult depending on who it is, but I had Angela and she was really friendly--just do your homework and do all of the readings, they can really be interesting.

Go see Dr. Hong when you have a chance and just honestly, realize that this class is really interesting everything you learn is something quite new.

I loved this class. Professor Mankekar is so sweet. She was very clear about the fact that she wanted this class to be low-stress and was super accommodating. She made the final optional! My TA Jananie was also really sweet and a good grader. I took this class in the online format and really the only work to submit was three papers, each around 4-5 pages and spaced 2 weeks apart, responding to a prompt on the course content and synthesizing materials from lectures, readings, and films. They each took me quite a long time but they are not very difficult; I got an A on all of them. There's asynch lectures to watch, readings (often long but close reading isn't crucial), and a few films. You also have to show up to discussion and participate as a part of your grade.

One thing to be aware of before taking this class is that it's not simply about the history of Asian American women. It's more about "using gender as an analytic" and has a lot do with understanding and analyzing how things like race, gender, labor, and geopolitics shaped the lives of Asian immigrant women. That kind of sociological/analytical/whatever type stuff did not come naturally to me so it took a bit of BSing at first. Definitely something to keep in mind if that's not you. However, I still liked the class regardless; it really opened my eyes! If you are looking for an easy GE/diversity req, it's a great option.
