Federico Marcon

Apr 2005

Federico is nothing like those pain-in-the-ass-TAs oh so common here at Columbia. He can be hyper and can tend to ramble on and on about some aspect of Japanese history--but that's just a testament to his vast knowledge of the topic. Unfortunately for the students planning to take Japanese history courses in the future, he has a scholarship to go study in Japan, which starts either in the fall or spring next year. Anyway, if you're interested in Japanese history, definitely take a class that he's a TA for. He's always available, returns emails promptly, grades fairly and takes care in explanations, and has a great sense of humor. I will truly miss having discussion sections with him.
