ARTH 3434 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I like Professor Blocker very much--if you are having trouble understanding the material, she is more than accommodating if you take the time to meet with her during office hours. I am not enthusiastic about the TA, however--grading seems punitive. Do not take unless you're very, very interested and capable of doing the work.

This is a great class! It absolutely takes your critical thinking to a higher level. It surveys the critical issues that surround contemporary art. Very informative and inspiring! Prof.Blocker is super patient and kind. If you really want to learn something and challenge your thinking in this university, take the class!

I loved Jane, I thought she was one of the best professors I had at the University as whole. She is tough, but you will learn SO MUCH.

Arth5000 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Clear lectures; knowledgeable, dedicated. Difficult to obtuse readings. Theory is King, art as object, not so much. You will work hard, your brain will hurt, you will learn. Point of view is Neo-Marxist/New Left/Feminist/Postmodern. Lots of group work/group presentations. Well worth 15 weeks. Lady knows her stuff.

ARTH5413 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Jane Blocker is truly amazing. She is an extremely intelligent, articulate, dedicated, well-rounded, feminist idealist academic who can inspire and leave long lasting impressions on her students as well as the rest of academia and by extension -fine, by extrapolation- life.
