Professor Graves is a wonderful professor that is not only very well-versed in the course content, but very passionate about it too. He is an extremely empathetic and understanding professor, so do your best in the class and you will be successful! (participate, do the readings, go to office hours for essays).

Refugee stories is a great introduction to a humanities course at Middlebury. While readings are assigned for each class, they are typically manageable and interesting, being a wide range from graphic novels to academic journals. Discussions can get tedious, but Prof. Graves does a good job switching up class format to prevent this. Overall, I've had a great experience.
