Survey of Literature: Great Books from World at Large
I had Nasia as a T.A. during my Sophomore year with Professor Gabra. Nasia was a wonderful T.A. and was genuinely concerned about student learning and was extremely approachable. She did a wonderful job of further explaining Edward Said's theory of Orientalism, Jeremy Bentham's Panopticon as well as Foucault. Nasia's insight on Chinua Achebe's Things Fall Apart indeed unique and very insightful. Overall a wonderful t.a. and I hoped for the opportunity of having her again.
Winter 2017 - Lectures aren't mandatory, but they are helpful background content for writing the essays. Most of the book is discussed in discussion, so reading is mandatory if you want to keep up with discussion and plan out the essays. Usually the TA's were the ones to help you structure and write the essays. Pretty easy class for the writing II requirement.
Fall 2020 - Professor Bosch Santana lectures on super interesting content. I honestly just took this class because it hit a lot of requirements, but I found myself really engaged with the material every week. She was also incredibly accommodating, extending deadlines during weeks of stress caused by general unrest in the world. She definitely cares a lot about her students.
Winter 2022 - Poli Sci majors, listen up: this is the writing 2 class for you. The subject matter was interesting with a great tie in to international politics, grading was reasonable, and the workload wasn't too bad at all. You don't have to attend lecture; it's discussion that will help you succeed in this class.
