I loved this class and couldn't bear the idea of ever missing it. I had NO knowledge of the subject matter beforehand, I just wanted to take a class with Bruce before I graduated. I'm SO glad I did and now I have a tremendous appreciation for the music we studied. Bruce is BEST!

There just isn't enough that can be said about how great this class was. I know most people on here say that, but it's true! Bruce is the MOST passionate and knowledgeable professor that's possible. He isn't as easy you you might think either, but he really makes you THINK about culture and America is new and unique ways. He's fabulous!

In my four years at UM Bruce easily passes as my favorite professor. He defines passion. The excitement and dedication he shows toward the material is infectious to his students. You can't help but be enthralled by him and the topic. HE IS AMAZING!

It's easy to tell how much Dr. Conforth loves teaching, and because of that he's really inspiring. This was a very, very good course. Quite frankly, he is a living legend among faculty at Michigan!

In this class you could tell that with each lecture Bruce not only had a deep knowledge of the material, but a real passion for the subject, and that he was really invested in each and every student as well. He's clearly the most passionate professor at the University!

I totally disagree about the books thing. The books that were assigned for this class were really fascinating and if you didn't read them you missed out on something. The book about hipness in American was really great! and Bruce did post another whole book on Ctools that's out of print that was excellent! Awesome class.

He's a harder grader than you'd think, but he's fair. You have to know the material to get a good grade the midterm and final. But moreover he's the most interesting and informative professor at UM. If you want to REALLY learn something, and about life, take any of his classes. I've had three now and they were great!

Amcult 208 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

There are 2 exams and 3 quizzes. The quizzes are on the weekend and are taken on Ctools. If you are unable to take the quiz he opens it another time. He had a ton of office hours. The exams are essay style. You get 4 questions and write about them for about a paragraph or 2. Don't buy the books; I never used mine. As everyone has said, he is great.
