Ms. Purohit is a young graduate student who is quite intelligent. The class met only once a week for 2 hours, was 4 credits worth, and satisfied a Major Cultures requirement for the College Core - yea it was a good deal. You really don't need to read all the texts in this class to do well, but you need to be able to sound like you know what you're talking about in discussion (i.e: same as every other humanities class), since if you don't participate it's glaringly obvious you didn't even open the book. There are a lot of books to read, something like one text due each week, so try to get to Butler soon and borrow them all at the beginning of the semester or get them off a friend who took the class in the past. Logistically, there were 2 papers and an oral final, and she graded fairly leniently on the papers, with the oral final being a breeze if you just focus on one theme throughout the works for the whole 5-10 mins. So it's not a hard class (although some of your classmates with be grade-A weirdos), the texts are actually pretty awesome, and she's not all bad either.
