I really liked Cohen. He's really passionate about what he teaches and tries drawing some really crazy cinematographic connections/conclusions that sometimes blew my mind. Other times his lectures were dry but overall really liked the material he taught and how he taught it. I took this pre-pandemic so im not sure what its like now, but we had two tests(essay response type), the first he really prepares you for if you pay mild attention and the second he literally tells you exactly which two questions he may give you as essay response, and then when we showed up he actually just gave us the option to do whichever one we wanted. Final project was a powerpoint and a video. He analyzed the movies a lot like you would hear an english professor analyze a book. I personally found it interesting, though I know other's didnt as much. Not a hard class though

Profesor Cohen is a great professor and seems to care about student learning and wellbeing- he was super understanding of COVID-19/any other things going on. The focus of the seminar was political art in Latin America in the 20th century and he was very knowledgeable about the topic and the discussions he led were generally interesting. The class included a group project as well as writing assignments. Participation is part of the grade, but it seemed to not be a huge deal if you did not speak much in class. Overall, this class was challenging (at least for me) but also very rewarding. I felt like I really learned a lot about the subject and also my writing and speaking skills definitely improved.
