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: Professor Cohen talks CRAZY fast so just be prepared to take your laptop to class everyday. Make sure you go to your review sessions!!! And his study guides are pretty much comprehensive. Section attendance is key to understanding the course, sorry.

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: Prof Cohen is brilliant, but not pretentious. He is an interesting, dynamic lecturer, though some people were overwhelmed with his lecturing style. He goes off on tangents frequently, but I found them interesting and funny. He assigned one paper 10-15 pages and there was one mid-term and final. The exams were essay format and challenging, but he provides a study guide and holds a study session to help students prepare. I wouldn't hesitate to take another class from him.
