Professor Prakash is an extremely effective lecturer. The class in itself is discussion-based and somewhat student-led with frequent (but beneficial) interruptions by Prof. Prakash. Prof. Prakash is extremely knowledgeable on the subject of the course, and his enthusiasm is evident anytime he talks (especially when the subject is Frantz Fanon). There are two essays per semester, and although the prompts are somewhat aggravatingly open-ended, the writing itself is not too difficult. His grading is fair and his feedback is clear. There are a lot of readings, but they're all very interesting.

While the class in itself is fast-paced Professor Prakash did a very good job of explaining course material. One thing to know is that this class requires you to read in the range of 40-80 pages of pretty dense reading a week. While this may seem like a lot Professor Prakash does a great job, especially in the discussions about breaking down those readings and explaining them in a more connected manner. As for Professor Prakash, he is extremely knowledgeable and also extremely passionate about the topics covered which makes for a much more enjoyable experience in the class.

the readings are pretty dense and long and because the class is completely discussion based, you have to read to participate. Definitely hard reads so can be tough to read the whole thing in depth or be fully prepped for class, but Amit is helpful with explaining the readings. The constant discussions can get a bit old, but it's nice being able to listen to peers rather than a lecture.
