    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It's a very intensive seminar-type course. A whole lot of reading, ~80 pages for every lecture, so if you're up for it, then go for it. Every class is a discussion; at first my class had about 20 people, and it went down to 13. Be prepared to contribute to the discussions; if this isn't your strong suit then I don't recommend. He is a great professor though, young, and he's willing to negotiate with you so that you can meet the deadlines.

    Course highlights:

    It's pockets of history of Southeast Asia, so it's not a general history course. For almost every SE Asian nation, we talked about one major event between that nation and the US. If you think America is So Great, you're going to think twice after the end of this course. Even I learned something that the Indonesian history books just skirted around, and I'm Indonesian.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read. Read. Read. When you think you're done, read again. Attendance is mandatory; since the class is small, he will know you name and face. Participate in discussions, which is literally every lecture. The final paper is a big chunk of your grade, and he has set dates and deadlines for sources, rough drafts, and final drafts. The final presentation is the presentation of your paper; 20 minutes, 15 minutes talking, 5 minutes questions.
