[RUSS V3223] Magical Mystery Tour

August 26, 2014

Izmirlieva, Valentina
[RUSS V3223] Magical Mystery Tour

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

Professor Izmirlieva is a phenomenal lecturer-- her class sessions are vibrant, informative, and relevant, and the assigned readings are well-selected and fascinating. One would expect a historical survey course to be somewhat dense and dry, but Magical Mystery Tour was anything but-- supplementing lectures with discussion sessions, films, and "field trips", Professor Izmirlieva worked hard to ensure that students weren't bored. That being said, last semester for various reasons she canceled a total of 6 classes and made no effort to make up for this lost time. Please know that if you take Professor Izmirlieva's course you may not get your money's worth.


Light-- brief weekly online responses, 2 very brief papers, and a midterm and final.
