Great Intro to the Subject
Pretty easy, overall.
I would definitely recommend this course to anyone considering an English major, as well as those who need to fulfill a gen ed requirement. It's honestly pretty easy (the reading load felt light to me, but I am a lit major) and the writing assignments were not intense. The selections are interesting and Dr. Segall is particularly interested in engaging with students and current events via all media available to her.
This course will introduce you to the language and ideas surrounding colonization and its effects in hybridity/liminality, identity, and narrative. You'll learn how to read for the ideas behind the text and learn how background and history play out in personal narrative.

Advice for students:
Do the reading and take notes on it! If you have trouble connecting the ideas from lecture to the reading, try talking with Dr. Segall about it. Make the ideas your own, frame the content with your own words, but learn how to use the language Dr. Segall suggests as well- she really focuses on specific phrases and you'll get along better if you use them.
