Comment: The class itself was okay. Nothing profound but was very easy. Final consisted of a photo essay.

Comment: Easy seminar. Pretty much just have to show up. Would assign readings for each class but they were not really necessary. He talks a lot, but he is so knowledgeable and interesting it didnt matter. He knows so much about what he is teaching and therefore you can tell he truely enjoys his field and cares for his students.

Comment: Extremely easy seminar to take if you need some extra units. The professor knows a lot about India and other anthropological topics, but he tends to monopolize the conversation and go off on really long tangents. If you ask questions, you might not receive an answer because he'll forget what question he was trying to answer by the end of his speech. Good class to take if you want a class that you really just have to show up for and nothing else.

Comment: Extremely knowledgeable professor--loves to talk! His seminar was pretty interesting, but I wished there was more student-led discussion...but since he started off the semester by doing most of the talking himself, the students assumed that was the path this course would take and we'd just sit there listening to him talk. Which was nice at times because he knew sooo much and could make connections like anything!

Comment: Nancy really knows her stuff and has a fabulous history that she is more than willing to share (in fact, most of the time she ended up telling us stories about her life instead of the subject material). I really enjoyed the seminar overall and it gave me a good introduction to medical antrhopology

Comment: Assigns quite a bit of work for a P/NP 1 unit class, but the class is pretty interesting overall. Joyce really knew her facts and occasionally would bring us chocolate in class as it was the "history of cacao" seminar. It's not exactly a sit back and relax class, as there is an assignment every week consisting of an assigned reading and a reflection report with source.
