My evaluation is on English M126 which is called Introduction to Feminist and Queer Theory. So far, this has got to be one of the most interesting classes I have ever taken IN MY LIFE! The material is very fascinating and even though it is theory, she succeeds in helping us see the connections between the theories and the present day. I had a wonderful time in this class because the lecture material was so relevant to today's world. I mean, who doesn't enjoy learning about the politics behind sexuality and gender? It's personal, but it's also political and that's one of the lessons I've learned from this class. She records her lectures and she also uses PowerPoint slides, so no need to worry about missing any information. She seriously cares more about her students than any other professor I've seen yet. She cares A LOT about students opinions (she even included them in a lecture). Very few professors take student opinions that seriously. She is also organized, which is always a plus. I recommend her because she is an intellectual, as well as sincere and cordial which is a combination that is hard to find among professors.
I honestly have to completely disagree with the two previous posts, which I guess were posted by two of my current classmates, as I am also taking the class right now. I think that Professor Lee is an exceedingly brilliant woman, sometimes to the point where some of the material is above my head--but I don't find that she ever makes it inaccessible. It is difficult to participate sometimes in discussion because of how dense and complicated the theory/works can get, but I have found this class to be beyond satisfying. I have learned so much over such a short period of time, and can honestly say that this is the class that made me happy to be an English major. There is quite a bit of reading, but the topic of the course ("Narrating through Body Parts") is vast in itself, and I think that Lee has done a pretty good job of giving the class a thorough look into Body Studies. Not many people go to office hours to speak with her about their concerns, which I suppose would account for some of the dismay. I find her to be engaging, certainly not monotonous (I am taking an ethics class with a professor who DEFINES monotony, so I understand the difference), and incredibly well-versed in her subject. Not only that, but she knows how to communicate difficult material with the students. I enjoyed her class so much that I will be taking a seminar with her next quarter. If you are up for the intellectual challenge, take a class with Lee. She is great.
