Professor Perez-Torres is one of the best professors I've had so for. He is incredibly engaging in his lectures and genuinely interested in what his students have to add. He doesn't just talk at the audience, but often takes time out to encourage class discussion. The lectures make you really interested in the texts, even if you didn't necessarily like them at first glance.
For the workload, it was definitely quite a bit of work, but I also personally put a lot of effort into this class. I'm sure you could get away with doing less. We had one midterm, a shorter essay (about 1200 words) and a final paper (about 2000 words). He gave prompts for the papers but was very lenient in adapting them to what you want to write about. He was very helpful in office hours and often took out time out of his day if I needed an office hour outside of his regular schedule. He also let us do a short presentation for extra credit.

If you ever have the chance to take Professor Perez-Torres, you should! I wouldn't even care what he is lecturing about, he'd find a way to make it interesting.
