One of the notorious "Group of 88" who rushed to judgment of the falsely accused Duke lacrosse team.

Exceedingly narrow within her own political situatedness, which, as others have observed, is quite to the left. She took my head off several times although my politics largely line up with her own. I smell a faint hint of man-hater on her.

I turned in good work but got a bad grade because she didn't agree with what I said. Lectures are boring. Lacks introspection and is closed minded because she is too liberal--she cannot appreciate any viewpoints other than her own. Maybe if you pander to what she wants, she will like you, but why take a class in college if you have to do that?

I took Professor Kim Curtis' class (POL104.01) in Spring 2006. Though her class was not difficult, she was an exceedingly difficult, ideological woman, bent on making her own points, & not listening to anyone else's. We watched About Schmidt, read Hannah Arendt, and had a term paper of about 10 pages, to discuss what we learned, which wasn't much.

Prof. Curtis does not possess enough emotional distance from her subject matter to teach it properly. She punishes students who disagree with her views and fails to offer a constructive environment. She should not be allowed to teach classes at any university, since she is a propagandist, not a professor.

preaches all the discredited leftist ideals. openly grades on student's looks and political position. disregards "inconvenient truths" that dismantle her arguments. just regurgitate what she says in class and you'll pass. typical leftist professor - bitter, used up, incapable of independent thought

A boring class on an interestng subject. Readings are pretty good, but talking about them sucks. I guess it all comes down to whether or not you like discussing literature because that is all you'll do. Should be named lit104
