One of the best classes I've ever taken. He prepares well for each meeting and makes the readings worth it--none of them are "busy work". We had some of the most meaningful discussions as a class and I learned so much beyond what was covered in the texts. Highly recommend this class to anyone.

The best professor I have had at IU so far. Extremely knowledgeable in his field, and he makes class interesting and thought-provoking. It felt like he really connected with everyone and was very approachable. He is also really hot but don't let it distract you from the fact that he's an awesome teacher.

I cannot say enough good things about Professor Herring. He is brilliant, and his lectures blow my mind every single time. They are genius. He assigns interesting and wonderful readings and relates them to us in a relevant way. He is hilarious and witty and you will get as much out of this class as you put into it. Read, participate, and enjoy.

Absolute best dude ever. Tough and expects good work but is such a good professor that you'll find yourself doing excellent work because you learned so much and maybe because you actually want to do right by this guy. Hilarious. Do the readings, if only to make class even more enjoyable.

Dude. I seriously had the biggest crush on him ever. Then, during the last class of the semester, he mentioned how he has a boyfriend. GOD. DAMNIT. Personal feelings aside, he is the most amazing teacher ever! He makes a boring subject interesting. Oh, and he's freaking hilarious.

Scott is my favorite professor at IU. I look forward to taking more of his classes in the future. I took so much out of class every single meeting. The worst part about the class is that every 50 minute meeting went by too quickly to savor. You seriously don't notice the passage of time in Scott's class.

He's the wittiest, most intelligent, fun, and approachable professor I've ever had at IU. (He also has fantastic hair.) I've taken away more from his class lectures than from any other professor's. Take any/all of his courses.

This was an awesome class. Scott is incredibly intelligent and his lectures are epic. I always left class with a new idea and a smile on my face. A serious must-take for anyone interested in American literature.
