Comment: This man is the definition of a professor. He wears a suit, slicked back hair, clean articulate voice. Always eager to talk about the material or any other tangents. His lectures are phenomenal. They are very well constructed and always finish strong. I'd say it was easy, some others thought it was a bit difficult, but it really depends on your GSI. I think i got lucky with my GSI, because I heard that some were harsher graders, but I also put work in. Overall, loved it, and I left wanting to take another Norena class.

Comment: Better than her co-lecturer, she her lectures were a bit more enjoyable. However, she managed to make the history of food (sounds interesting right?) into an incredibly boring and dry subject. I was so excited for this class and was greatly disappointed and this was mostly due to the professors.

Comment: Terrible lecturer! She co-lectured with another professor (they switched off days) and I would actually dread going to her lectures! She was unbelievably boring and went off topic ever other sentence! Would not recommend one of her classes.

Comment: Barshay is a really nice guy, but his lectures are very hard to follow. As someone else mentioned before me, he does not lecture chronologically and goes on tangents for about half the class period. This leaves him with a great portion of his lecture unfinished to be picked up in the next class, which just makes him get more behind on future lectures. Anyway, he is very knowledgeable about Japanese history and some of the things he lectured on grabbed my attention, but most of the time, I was just too lost to really know what he was talking about.

Comment: Norena is awesome. His lectures are interesting, straightforward, and easy to take notes from. He is obviously really enthusiastic/knowledgeable about his subject, which made me more compelled to listen to him. I would take another class from him, even though I am not a history major.
