Professor Okami was an interesting enough lecturer. I think he made some interesting points, but he presented them in a very insensitive manner. He made jokes about domestic violence portrayals in the media, and declared to the class that the Clothesline Project (where sexual abuse victims decorate shirts about their experiences) was misleading. I thought this was quite insensitive as rape victims may have been amongst the students in the class, and he insisted on belittling their experiences. He also told us too many personal details for comfort(eg, he's on his fourth wife and that one of them choked him and another one broke his rib). The class was NOT about mass media images, but rather evolutionary psychology, the final paper was assigned with out much direction, which made it difficult to write, and the exams were relatively detail specific. There was a tad bit too much reading and the Pinker Blank Slate book should be burned because it's so repetitive. Probably would not recommend the class.
