I took this class in the Fall of 2023 and I was initially very excited because of the course title and description. However there were almost no discussions in this class and the lectures kind of dragged on. However Prof Lewis was a fair grader and gave clear instructions for his expectations of the assignment, but there was virtually no feedback given for the papers. I would take this course only if you are able to go over the content and readings alone and don't rely on class to engage with the content.

I learned a lot from this course, but I feel that this is because of my own passion for the subject matter and not professor Lewis's teaching. He is not the greatest lecturer (though he is not bad) and overall just does not seem the most engaged with the course. Papers are graded fairly IMO and there are no exams, but the actual lectures are so boring that it becomes an extremely easy class to skip.

The content itself was very interesting and I enjoyed learning about politics in Southeast Asia as it is barely talked about. However, Professor Lewis was not the most engaging professor. His lectures can get a bit repetitious and a lot of students do not seem very engaged. Before this semester, a final 15 page paper was required, but not anymore. There are only 2 papers that you have to write total (around 6 pages), which is fairly chill. No exams and homework besides readings, which he covers the main points in class anyways. There is also a group project presentation, and a small in-class briefing you have to do (very manageable though).
