It's a very discussion-based class based on readings and thematic ideas. Prof. White is definitely passionate and good at leading these discussions, but I would've loved to hear more of her expertise instead of purely discussion. She definitely picks favorites, but it only comes through in class discussions and otherwise, her grading is fair and pretty easy overall. In general, there's a reading due each class with discussion questions or a short essay about it. There's a few papers throughout the semester, a fairly long writing-based midterm in class, and one big 10 page research paper on a topic of your choice as the final paired with a very casual presentation. She's very engaged and interested in student input and takes discussion very seriously, and in general, she's a very accommodating and kind professor. I would definitely recommend this class overall as the content is very interesting, just be aware of its little quirks.

This class was awesome, there were super interesting readings about ancient Japanese practices and the homework was to read the chapters and write discussion questions. There was a fun group research project at the end of the class where we presented as a humanities lab.

The class was very fun. Takahashi sensei, Saigo sensei, and White sensei are all enthusiastic and very understanding professors. I definitely recommend the class. The course is fast pace but the amount of tests, quizzes, and homeworks makes it easier to memorize words and grammar points.
