I really loved this class. I found Graves to be engaging and good at facilitating discussion. He is a very easy grader and dropped on of our three papers for the semester. Along with the three papers we had to do a close reading in class, which was also very easy and chill. The books he picks are really great and fun easy reads. He'll actively adjust the syllabus if he feels he assigned too much reading. A lot of the books don't really connect to media or media theory but they are great reads and discussion is engaging. Once you get past the first few classes, he really drops the whole media theory ideas. This was a great, chill class and I am taking a class with him again next semester.

Refugee stories is a great introduction to a humanities course at Middlebury. While readings are assigned for each class, they are typically manageable and interesting, being a wide range from graphic novels to academic journals. Discussions can get tedious, but Prof. Graves does a good job switching up class format to prevent this. Overall, I've had a great experience.
