Quarter Taken: Winter 2019 Submitted June 29, 2019 Grade Received: N/A

The most helpful professor I've had this year. Very understanding and accomodating. Prof. Burke is a great source of information, further readings, and will help you find sources for final paper (hint: use books, not JStor articles.) The final paper prompts were very interesting! Lectures are clear, but a lot of information, so be ready to take notes quickly. Readings are relevant (Insoll is especially enjoyable). I learned a lot. Would absolutely take classes with her in the future.

Quarter Taken: Winter 2017 Submitted March 16, 2017 Grade Received: N/A

For someone interested in art history and archaeology, I LOVED this class. Islamic Archaeology is a topic not often covered in your GE courses, so it was really cool to go more in-depth on it, and it felt very relevant to today's world. Professor Burke does speed through the lectures, so be ready to take lots of quick notes (she does post the slides though, which are basically all you need). There are map quizzes every week, which were the hardest part for me since it was just memorizing a bunch of Arabic city names. Otherwise, the midterms weren't bad, and the papers, while quite long at 10 pages, were manageable if you put the time in. I would recommend this class! You'll learn a lot and enjoy the material.
