Tufts University: EXP063F - Potrayal of Women in Islam - Experimental College - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Serap Kantarci | EXP063F - Potrayal of Women in Islam | Experimental College2006-04-25

Review:
Serap Kantarci is by far, the best professor I've had at Tufts.Throughout the class she invited guest speakers from Harvard Law School, BU, MIT and Harvard Divinity School related to our class discussions and reading materials. I learned a lot about Muslim societies, Islamic culture and stigmatization of Muslim women in the Western world. It was the most diverse, multicultural class I've ever taken at Tufts.

Workload:
Writing short reflection papers about the documentaries and weekly reading assignments. At the end of the semester you are supposed to present your final project in class and you are exposed to very interactive, dinamic, entartaining class environment which I liked the most !

Review:
I took this course last year, but I just wanted to re-affirm would these students have been writing,this was my favorite course in both Gender Studies and Religious Studies that's mostly due to Professor Kantarci.

Workload:
Weekly reflection papers + class presentations + final paper. I believe course work was very reasonable.

Serap Kantarci | EXP063F - Potrayal of Women in Islam | Experimental College2006-01-19

Review:
Professor Kantarci is a very energetic, fun and lively professor who cares very much about students? progress. She is usually concerned with students' understanding and class involvement. The bottom line is that you will be very entertained by her and learn a lot about Gender & Islam, Women's Movements and Feminist Ideology in Muslim Societies. She's a wealth of information and really will teach you a lot. She is inviting guest speakers-lecturers every other week that makes the class unique.

Would highly recommend both the class and the teacher.

Workload:
Weekly short reflection papers, class presentations, final paper (20 pages)

Serap Kantarci | EXP063F - Potrayal of Women in Islam | Experimental College2005-12-07

Review:
Professor Kantarci is a fantastic professor, she is obviously very knowledgeable and interested in the material, and is happy to answer any questions students may have about gender issues in Muslim societies, status of women in Islam and Islamic Law. I am Jewish and through the class I realized all the steorotypes and labels that Media attached to Muslim women in American society.

Workload:
Your grade will be based on participation as well as two papers and a final paper. Definetly "Manageable work load". If you are interested in gender&religion or feminist theory don't miss that class!

Serap Kantarci | EXP063F - Potrayal of Women in Islam | Experimental College2005-10-03

Review:
I love her style in lecturing, and I think she makes the class very interesting with discussions,group projects, documentaries,and external speakers (who are experts on their research fields). If you want to learn more about Islam and Gender role in Muslim societies, you should take this course :)

Workload:
Weekly short papers (on chapters and documentaries) are required. Participation is more important than attendance. Grading is very fair and you learn a lot through the class.

Serap Kantarci | EXP063F - Potrayal of Women in Islam | Experimental College2005-04-21

Review:
Professor Kantarci was one of the best teachers I've had a Tufts. She loves what she teaches, is entertaining and exciting, and is very clear when she lectures. This class helped me make sense of my own religious/political views.

Mostly she asks for students? viewpoints and the best part of the class is interaction w/ guest speakers or classmates.

Workload:
Readings are not dense !! Definitely interesting and weekly paper assignments are pretty straightforward. No Final exam but oral presentation in class with a final paper.

Serap Kantarci | EXP063F - Potrayal of Women in Islam | Experimental College2005-03-13

Review:
Prof. Kantarci inspired me to learn more about Islam and gender rights in Islamic Law...She is amazing--god's gift to Academia!! I hope she will teach the same course in the Fall 2005. Definitely recommended*

Workload:
We had Leila Ahmed's book, I think she is a great scholar in that field (teaching at Harvard Divinity School)and weekly assigned documentaries to watch. Lots of discussions instead of loooong boring lectures. No complaints about the reasonable workload of the class !

Serap Kantarci | EXP063F - Potrayal of Women in Islam | Experimental College2004-11-24

Review:
I think Serap is a very energetic, enthusiastic, creative instructor who makes the class interesting and informative. Also, she is your friend with a good sense of humor :)You can't understand how the time passes so quickly ! it is not a Boring class* You will find an interactive class atmosphere which is comfortable and friendly...I like her teaching techniques since she gets your attention suddenly and you will get involved in class discussions.

She invites guest lecturers, scholars every other week and lets us see and understand the different perspectives, approaches and traditions within Islam and diverse Muslim societies. This is the course that you can learn a lot about the history of Islam and the role of women in current Muslim societies. We have been watching varies documentaries regarding the status of women in Egypt, Morocco, Afghanistan, Iran, ..etc and discussing what we have seen and what we have learned!! You don't need to read hundreds-thousands of pages for this course, you will learn a lot during the class discussions, movies, guest speakers' lectures and oral presentations. I think she will teach "Women in the Third World" course in the Spring semester and I can definitely recommend her course if you are interested in that area. I believe you will enjoy her class...

Serap Kantarci | EXP063F - Potrayal of Women in Islam | Experimental College2004-11-07

Review:
She's a good teacher. She's very lenient in turning in assignments and so on. No pressure really.

Workload:
There are reading assignments, but the subject is so interesting that it doesn't seem like much to do. There are occasional papers that are approx. 2 pages in length and are simply a response to something you read or saw (i.e. documentary). There are also guest speakers which are very informative.
