Ian Barrow is the most genuine professor I've had at Middlebury. Because the class is seminar based, Professor Barrow does an amazing job of facilitating the conversation... so the 3 hours are definitely bearable. I wasn't a super big history buff going into the class, but being surrounded by people who were really enhanced my learning experience. You will have 3 papers and 2 presentations, but they're all doable based on the amount of reading you do. Overall great class and would 100% recommend taking a class with Professor Barrow!

Excellent course. You don't need to be a history buff to like this course. Its fun. Its easy. Three essays make up your grade. You have to do two small presentations but they are effectively ungraded. Barrow is very kind and knows his stuff.

I really enjoyed the structure of this course –– weekly readings and the choice of when to write papers. The class is entirely discussion-based, so it is a lot of learning from your peers. I would definitely take another class with Professor Barrow!
