Comment: This class was poorly organized and executed. It's not taught very often so I didn't expect perfection, but it was difficult. Professor Laqueuer is a cool guy and the topics we studied are really interesting but he is really unclear about his expectations in the class. The whole entire grade was based on one paper at the end of the semester, but we did not know that until after the semester ended because he never gave us a grade breakdown.

Comment: It's easy to see that Laquer really has a passion for history and teaching. His lectures were interesting and if I drank coffee throughout I'd really enjoy them . . . buuuuut if you've been short on sleep his voice is soothing in the my-eyelids-are-feeling-really-heavy kind of way. But he's always welcoming at office hours and really seeks to explain the material. He also holds weekly coffee hours to discuss history/life (and he often buys the students' drinks. chyeah!). I had a great GSI who prepared us well for the tests which were pretty challenging. I also found the essays to be difficult but manageable. The course material itself was really fascinating and the textbook is great. I'd recommend this class to anyone who isn't afraid of doing lots of reading (like looooooots of reading!) as you will be expected to read the textbook, primary source documents and a few novels, too.

Comment: I thought laqueur was a very enthusiastic lecturer and you can tell he really enjoys history. He hols coffee sessions which seemed interesting if you wanted to get to know him. I was also lucky to have an amazing GSI.
