Sexualities and Storytelling

May 2003

Rachel is a very young professor (she looks about 20), but she is extremely knowledgeable about the material she teaches. She is very bright, remembers all sort of historical facts (and what she doesn't remember/know, she is happy to look up, and doesn't seem to mind when people tell her stuff she didn't know about before), and encourages plenty of class discussion, although she is almost always able to keep it on track. The syllabus is great; there is definitely a slant toward French literature, which is to be expected with her background. But the class is enjoyable, not hard at all, but not mind-numbing either.
