Mercer, Christia Silver_nugget
[PHIL V2110] Philosophy and Feminism

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

What an amazing class. I will admit that Professor Mercer's can be a bit scattered and seemingly unorganized at times, but I came to realize while studying for the final how well everything fit together, and the reason her Power Points overlapped were to emphasize how everything we were learning was intertwined. I left the final exam feeling inspired, and actually enjoyed taking the test, which is not an easy thing for a professor to make happen. Professor Mercer is brilliant and bold, and has such an inspiring presence. This was my first semester at college, and it was such an amazing way to start it. I highly recommend this class!

Workload:

Readings that you have to motivate yourself to keep up with, but they're all amazingly well-chosen and enjoyable! 3 papers that aren't too painful, a midterm, and a final. 10 posts on relevant material by the end of the semester. It'll be worth every hour you put into this course, I promise.
