Mercer, Christia Silver_nugget
[PHIL V2110] Philosophy and Feminism

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

Take this class. I signed up for it completely unaware of the many things it would make me reconsider. She'll honestly tell you that she has every intention of changing your opinions on some of the topics - as long as you're aware that you're being indoctrinated, accept it. I left class everyday (never skipped) wanting to call someone and discuss the topics and ideas. The paper grades were frightening at first but as long as you show improvement and understanding your final grade will reflect it. Her lectures are stimulating and often entertaining. This is one of those classes that you'll remember and be glad that you took long afterwards.

Workload:

Regular reading, but they're often interesting. 3 papers of increasing length (but never more than 6-7 pages), 2 lecture analysis, a Met assignment, and the final (some ID's, passage analysis, and creative essay).
