I took Anthro 8 with her, and honestly if given the option to go back in time, I would not take it again with her. There have been multiple instances where i've dozed off in lectures because all she does is read off the slides; hence, lectures are rather boring. She also expects you to do intense reading of the textbook, and there are just so many tiny, irrelevant details she tests you on. I'd say I put in a decent amount of effort into this class, but it wasn't enough to get an A. On the other hand, discussions were fun! Basically, if you're REALLY good at memorizing and mugging up a whole bunch of tiny details and information, then take this class. If you're not EXTREMELY good at memorization, DO NOT take this class with Levine. Anthro 8 is supposed to be an easy class, but with Levine it is the exact opposite.

I really enjoyed Economic Anthropology with Professor Levine. She is a great lecturer presenting information in an engaging manner often linking economic theory to contemporary situations or discussing her research in Peru without resorting to a powerpoint of holiday snaps! There was frequent engagement in discussion by most students enrolled and attendance was always high - surely a good sign.

Both Professor Levine and her TA's are very fair markers and the questions for class papers are interesting and allow you to pick up marks by showing an understanding of the concepts. Readings were also pretty engaging on the whole.

I would definitely recommend this class and Professor Levine in general - I assume her other classes are equally worthwhile as her lecture style is a lot of fun and keeps you interested throughout.

Not a good professor. She requires 8 expensive textbooks and also assigns tons of extensive journals to read.
