This class was the best class I took this semester. He is the kind of professor you wish taught all of your classes. Tons of life experience, a wealth of knowledge, and of course, brilliant teaching. He knows exactly what he wants you to get out of the readings and the course in general.
The most frustrating part was that the syllabus is intense and all over the place. It is very much an "intro" class as you will be asked to read works on anthropology to linguistics to romantic literature to the holocaust... It can be overwhelming, but he breaks it down for you. Plus, there's no midterm or final so if you really don't understand something, it's OK!
