I was really interested in this course, I loved reading literature from Caribbean authors! Professor Philogene clearly loves teaching this course, without her energy I think the class would be quite slow and dull. She is very knowledgable of the materials we read and outside material that we connect to our readings. Her teaching style is sometimes hard to follow if you are not into long lectures and conversations, and she will often ask you to repeat things so others can hear it. You have to write 4 papers for the class, 2 reflection and 2 critical analysis, all 4 pages long. She is a bit of a tough grader and is not always the most consistent with grades/comments on papers. It takes her a while to get graded papers back to you, but she is always encouraging students to come to office hours to discuss anything. I enjoyed this course and appreciate being exposed to such fantastic texts and authors. If you enjoy conversation style learning and are interested in Caribbean authors and stories I highly recommend!!
