    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Cooppan encourages students in her class to be engaged, facilitating class discussions on the readings. She's also really funny, and if you get stuck with Lit 1 as an 8:00am (I am so sorry), you know that she'll be a good start to your day

    Course highlights:

    Analyzing texts, were the best thing ever! The readings were interesting if a little complicated, and it taught me to be able to fish out the important information from a text.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    KEEP UP WITH THE READINGS!!!!!!!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was so Interesting! It really makes you think about our world today and our world back then, and how we still have the same reoccurring issues just in different forms. Professor Lau pushes you to discuss topics of patriarchal authority, gender roles, misogyny and much more.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course for me were definitely the readings! We read Gone Girl which was a very good and intriguing book. We also started with old fairytales, the originals as in Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, and Snow White. These were extremely interesting because in the original Sleeping Beauty she is actually raped, yet it is still a top hit for the animated Disney film today.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    DO THE READINGS!! What's the point in being in a Literature class if your not going to read? If you do the readings it will make your life 100% easier, and it will make your life not painfully awkward during discussions because you will know what to say. Have an opinion and don't be afraid to share it, there is no right or wrong interpretation in this kind of class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    She is a GREAT professor. My absolute favorite in the literature department. She professors much of her own theory, and was recently published. Definitely worth taking a class!

    Course highlights:

    he readings were always relevant to lecture, so nothing felt like a waste of time. Although there was some dense theory to get through, she always took her time to unpack it and make sure the class understood the big ideas

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Very engaging and helpful. She always gave back great written and oral comments on all work. It was a lot of reading, but definitely manageable.
