Pretty easy, overall.
I enjoyed this class greatly. Sara does a great job at covering anthropology as a whole and really gives you a solid understanding of all aspects of anthropology. I appreciated how Sara has experience in fieldwork, she is able to allow her students some perspective about what it’s like to actually work in the field.
The aspect to this course I appreciated the most was learning about gender and sexuality. One of the lab the class did was centered around having students of unorthodox sexualities speak about their experiences and it was incredibly powering to see them share their stories. I realized during that chapter of the course exactly how naive I was to the broad range of sexualities, and it was able to provide me with a greater perspective.

Advice for students:
I would recommend that students become as engaged with the course as possible. The course provides so much potential for growth as students/individuals, and I saw many of my peers not fully appreciate the amount of insight that was provided. There is a lot of readings, and outside work that go along with the course but it is definitely worth doing given the fact it will allow you to fully appreciate the lectures.
