Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Professor Selwyn is very enthusiastic about her material. She always showed up on class in a good mood, ready to teach, and engaged us in class discussions. Professor Selwyn uses powerpoints and requires readings for class but she also shares most, if not all, of them with the class for studying purposes.
This course went from the bubonic plague until the mid-1800s. The material is very interesting, everything from the black death to witch hunts to the Renaissance. The readings are interesting and include much about the society during the Renaissance especially in Italy and England, they are easy to complete.

Advice for students:
Some advice for this class would be to put in time on her essays and don't be afraid to go see the Teaching Assistants for their input. Not only that, but ask questions and take notes. This class is easy if you pay attention and give a little effort.
