Tufts University: Winifred Rothenberg - Economics - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Winifred Rothenberg | EC087 - The Economics of the British Industrial Revolution | Economics2004-07-16

Review:
The hardest part about this course was trying to stay awake. Rothenberg is genuinely nice person, but her soft-spokeness makes it hard to pay attention. She shows a lot of enthusiasm for the course though. If you suck it up and show up to class, it makes the papers easier. She can tend to play into stereotypes, but is done inadvertently.

Workload:
Lots of readings assigned, but not all necessary (especially towards the end of the semester). Just your basic read and highlight so that they can be referenced for the papers (4 papers assigned). A project at the end turned out to be a disaster because of her poor organizing ability and the inability to get the whole class in on the same day. Papers were about every 2-3 weeks or so.

Winifred Rothenberg | EC087 - The Economics of the British Industrial Revolution | Economics2004-03-12

Review:
If you thought taking this course would be an easy way to fulfill your econ requirement for IR, think again. Professor Rothenberg is obviously enthusiastic for the course, she enjoys her students, and enjoys explaining her knowledge of the topic; she loves economic history, perhaps even too much. The problem lies in the delivery of the course subject matter. She can be overly redundant, and monotone, and it is very hard to listen to her -- old age? She also doesn't understand political correctness, often committing racial stereotypes in her daily lectures. She also ends class 10 minutes late for each class without fail. Her essays are tremendously difficult unless you have unfailing attention to detail. Her redeeming factor is that she gives plenty of time to write them. This class is not worth taking...

Workload:
Reading assignments if you actually do them, are ridiculously long and tedious. 100 pages and more each week. Papers due every other week.
