South African Lit and Cultural Struggles

Wenzel, Jennifer
South African Lit and Cultural Struggles

One advice: do not take this class. Professor Wenzel is, I would almost say, uninformed about South Africa and the history of Apartheid; worst, she refuses to listen to the voices of Black South Africans who take her class. Most of the books she assigns at by white authors, while the shorter readings are by Black authors, but when prompted on why she does this, she often responds that she does not understand the meaning of the question...

Her teaching style is not about fostering a conversation about the readings but rather, telling you her opinion without you being able to have one. She is a harsh grader and will slash down the grade your TA gave you. My recommendation: do not take the class.


A lot, and you will not even get a good grade even if you work for it.
