Comment: This class. I don't even know where to begin. The lectures were boring (she just rambles and it all seems unstructured / improvised) and lecture attendance counted toward your grade, which was annoying. We had two essays: one on a movie that was shown in class (I didn't go to that lecture and I couldn't find the movie online) and another on the readings. There was also a midterm on lecture material. We got the midterm questions ahead of time to study, but some of the questions made no sense and didn't yield anything on Google. I'm pretty sure almost everyone in that class was taking it to get some requirement out of the way. Very few students seemed to actually care about the course content.

Comment: I still have no idea what the ISF department does. It seems like its really a useless department that talks about a lot of nonsense lol. But that's just me being an EECS major and sh*tting on humanities majors. Anyways, Holub is pretty enthusiastic about the nonsense she teaches. The exams are hilariously easy (she gives you the answers beforehand), and the essays are really easily graded. There's no reason why you shouldn't get an A++++ in this class lol.

Comment: Holub is extremely knowledgeable about the course material. However, she sometimes struggles with wording her ideas and students are often confused about what she is asking. There is way too much assigned reading, but the bulk of the paper/midterm were from the lectures, which are mandatory (30% of grade). Grading is extremely generous and all the midterm questions are chosen from study questions assigned weekly. Overall, this is a class where you can learn a lot, but requires some degree of engagement/discussion
