Professor Myers is the best! She is incredibly approachable and kind, and does her best to collaborate with her students- whether it is through class discussion or meetings about your papers. Her grading is very fair and reasonable, and she strives to make herself available for her students.
The texts itself were very interesting and engaging. There were more Russian texts than I expected. (Not a bad thing at all, just unexpected! Should have predicted this given that Professor Myers has a PhD in Slavic Languages.)
This class has helped to inform how I approach news articles, documentaries, historical fiction, etc. Highly recommend!
