course
the African Novel

May 2007

Joey is one of the best professors I have ever had a Columbia. He facilitates discussions without lecturing or letting chatty students run the class, adds interesting and useful insight into the readings, and really presses students to think about the issues that come up in class with more than a superficial understanding. Amazing. Plus, his book selections were phenomenal -- you really get a broader understanding about the transitions and formation of modern African literature.
