2237 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A-

Not great, she misattributed quotes and ideas, had disorganised slides, focussed on the wrong thinkers and would gloss over important topics then explain common knwoedge things. She either thinks all her students are stupid or else she is just condescending. And she's one of those profs who tries to do socratic teaching in a big lecture hall.

POLISCI 2237 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She's a lovely woman and a fantastic prof, you really have to pay attention to her lectures and you'll understand the material. She travels a lot for presentations so she missed a few lectures. Her evaluation (two essays and a quiz, no exam) was really effective, I feel like I've learned a lot more than if i crammed for an exam.

Sweet woman but dull lectures. Good in the philosophical field but rarely incorporates much politics into the course.

WonT9759 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

The most rewarding experience of my graduate degree. She infuses her expertise in Critical Studies and Political Theory (Nietzsche, Foucault, et al) with brilliant novelty and refreshing accessibility. My confidence soared as a result of her clarity, patience, and encouragement. Nandita epitomizes the postmodernist UWO so desperately needs more of.

POL2237 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Not a fan of this prof, feminism comes roaring through in her lectures, often changing things like Plato's philosopher-king to 'philosopher-queen' completely unnecessarily. If you can identify with feminism, then you will like her, otherwise don't take a class with this prof.

poli2237 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

A truly gifted professor who is passionate about her subject and extremely helpful. One of those rare professors who can make you feel good even if you have just made a really stupid observation and answered a question incorrectly. She is always 'up' and cheerful. Classes just flew by.
