I thoroughly enjoyed Prof. Arroyo Calderon's lectures and her course as a whole. She's fun and engaging, and she's very passionate about the topics she teaches. She is also very accessible and generous with her time during office hours. She also know's a LOT about Latin American history and culture. I would recommend her, but you have to like to read Spanish.

I had the pleasure of taking Profesora Bergero's class in Spring 2017. We covered topics like modernism and feminism, with weekly readings from a $20 course reader. We had to write a weekly reflection on the pieces that we read for that week. I think she is forgiving about these, since I forgot to turn one in. We had a midterm and a final paper, which were comparison papers on some texts. Finally, we had a group presentation where we had to review one of the topics that we had covered in class. You signed up at the start of the quarter with whoever you wanted. In short, you don't need to worry about your grade here.

Even if you were, though, she is the sweetest and most approachable person. As a non-native speaker, I had concerns about how to keep up with her lectures. She listened to my concerns and encouraged me to stop her during class. The most important thing to her was that everyone in her class understood the material. She would take as long as she needed for that. I cannot emphasize enough how amazing of a person she is. Nobody in my class had complaints about Profesora Bergero. Rather, we learned a lot from her class while also protecting our grades. I recommend her wholeheartedly.

I love this professor. He was truly born to teach.
The lectures are pretty long, but always interesting. For the two papers in the class he has you choose 2 topics to write about (5 pages for each topic regarding material read in class, so a total of 10-page papers). These papers are generally not very difficult because you can look to lectures for the answers. He also seems to reward critical thought and individual interpretation of the readings.
He is a wonderful professor and has awoken a newfound love for Mexican literature in me!
I fully recommend this class!
