Gundgodu is a great professor. She is very welcoming, supportive, and helpful when you need it. Unlike many of the TA's , she welcomes your opinions (even if they consist of incorrect interpretation of the text) and is excited to answer any questions you may have.
Although this is an intro level course, don't expect easy material. There are a lot of weekly readings, which are not light reads! They are chalk full of meaning, so you literally cannot skip anything. Gundogdu really helps though! Her lectures clarify all the important parts of the books/articles that you read in the class. Discussion sections can be annoying... I always wished that TA's would go over more material from the text instead of let us ask random questions... P.S. stay away from Guido!!!
