Packert is super passionate and dedicated to the subject matter and made sure that we learned a ton about the the Mughal Empire and its artwork, which is a super fascinating and rich topic. The readings were quite heavy and she expected a lot from us, often cold calling in class about specific details from them. We had three pretty substantial papers, including one comparing two three-hour films. Not harsh grading, but definitely honest. Lots of work but super rewarding in my opinion, I walked away with a lot of knowledge on the subject matter and a better grasp on visual/historical analysis. Packert is also enthusiastic about meeting with students and would take feedback about due dates and what worked/what didn't.

This course was extremely lecture-heavy, and the lectures were often boring. There is almost no homework, just readings that are unnecessary because everything is covered in lectures. It is a good class if you are interested in art history, but it it extremely fast-paced, and the amount of content is overwhelming.

Very lecture-heavy class with little work other than reading about 2 chapters of the textbook every week, and even that is not necessary because the lectures cover most of the material. It's a great class if you're interested in art history. There are guest lecturers every week from the department who cover different regions and time periods. Some of the lectures can be incredibly boring. I genuinely liked the content and still fell asleep in some classes. The discussion sections are fun. Overall, Prof. Packert makes the class really easy for students and it's a good class if you like art history or just need a light workload.
