Fascinating class and Mike is a great instructor. His stories are captivating and he is so relaxed. He can be a difficult grader at times so I recommend discussing your fieldwork ideas with him outside of class. Otherwise I 100% recommend this class.
While the reading might be a bit tedious, classes are always engaging and exciting. Professor Sheridan is very knowledgeable and fun to be around. The papers were graded fairly with meaningful feedback.
I really enjoyed this course. I found that it was important to keep up with the reading for this class in order to understand the content. The material was interesting and valuable, but I did find that the standards of writing for this class were very high.
