[CPLS W3620] Islam and Europe

Dobie, Madeleine Silver_nugget
[CPLS W3620] Islam and Europe

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

A stimulating class that covers a long period of history. Dobie assigns lots of interesting reading that includes perspectives from both sides of the two cultures. The class is a mix of lecture and discussion, although a few people would just speak for eternity.

The impression I got from Dobie is that she is a true scholar: very careful with the words she uses and very meticulous with her selection of reading to try to enable us to learn as much as possible. She has a witty sense of humor and good interaction with students. She actually put in the effort of learning everyone's name! She's also very approachable outside of class.
A great class to take for fun and for the major cultures requirement. If an engineering student like me could say this about a humanities class, that speaks volumes =P

Workload:

Lots of reading, two 3-4pg papers, a midterm and final that are quite factual-based. Participation/attendance counts for 20%.
