Jakobsen, Janet Silver_nugget
Religion, Gender and Violence

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

Prof. Jakobsen is HANDS DOWN the best professor I have had in my 3.5 years at CU. If you have any interest in social movements, theories of justice, human rights, gender issues...this class is well worth taking. I found myself putting off all my other classes because I found the reading Prof. J assigned so facinating...and how often do you hear that about a class on this campus?! Like other reviewers, I loved Prof. J's dry and witty sense of humor...she is such a busy woman but totally approachable...she even let me design my own (eclectic) topic for our final paper! I worked ten times harder on that paper because I wanted to do justice to her amazing class.
Bottom line: Human Rights/Religion/Women and Gender Issues/Poli Sci ppl...take this class...you won't regret it.

Workload:

2 5-7 page papers on the readings (not that bad if you go to class), class participation, final 15-20 page paper (but she gives you A LOT of flexibility on the topic)
