Tufts University: Steven Marrone - History - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Steven Marrone | HIST188 - Independent Study | History2005-05-11

Review:
I happened to stumble across Tuftsreviews.com when looking for some general information about the school that granted me two degrees some years back. When I read the reviews of Steven Marrone, I was troubled. These reviews do not do the man, or his art, justice.

Marrone is indeed, one of the best assets to the liberal arts curriculum at Tufts. And although his expertise is designated as European History, he is one of the few Professors at Tufts who goes above and beyond his field.

If you are lazy, don't take his classes. He does not assign a ridiculous amount of work, but he does require that you think about history in relation to one's own world. For those of you who are willing to think and challenge all that is around you, Steven Marrone will engage you in myriad ways.

Marrone not only educates students, he challenges what history means. He also invites all of his students to do the same.

I had Marrone in a seminar, not a survey course and he then became one of my three thesis advisors for a dual degree from Tufts/SMFA. (As it was so long ago I had to use Open Study as a field for this site.)

That seminar, GENDER, REASON and RELIGION, was the best investment I made at Tufts. It was one of the few places where the quiet folks were willing to speak out, and those of us that were -- eh, louder -- engaged with others that we normally would not engage with.

Prof. Marrone?s engagement of us all provided an experience that was unrivalled at a school whose P.R. bent leans toward the homogenous.

I thank him for that, as his teachings created a moral compass for my work as a documentary film-maker.

So go think.

Workload:
Very manageable.

Steven Marrone | HIST020 - Europe in the Early Middle Ages | History2005-05-07

Review:
Excellent professor. He's truly interested in his subject and tries to convey his love of it to his students. Lectures cover 1-2 topics each time, and often interrelate. It makes for a fairly wide view of the period.

Workload:
Work load was about normal.

Steven Marrone | HIST113 - Religious and Spiritual Map of Europe from 300-1500 | History2004-12-08

Review:
This was a very interesting class. Professor Marrone is a very nice guy, who clearly knows a lot about European history, if not all the particulars of the religions. The class focuses more on Western Europe (no Easter orthodoxy.) Some of the lectures are lacking in terms of thematic coherency, but overall are interesting (more often when he goes off on tangents.) Marrone is very flexible, and willing to accommodate students' needs.

Workload:
Quickie questions (prepare a few points for discussion in class) about the readings. They can be a bit extensive, but you don't need to do most of it, especially after the first few weeks. Also 3 papers, 1 5-7 pages, 2 7-9 pgs. Limited choice in terms of topics. They related pretty closely to the lectures & reading.

Steven Marrone | HIST021 - Europe in the High Middle Ages | History2004-04-14

Review:
I thought Marrone was just okay. He is very interested in the subject matter, but the course is pretty much a survey that just goes over the readings. Class discussions were unproductive as Marrone talked the majority of the time. However, Marrone is helpful in office hours.

Workload:
One 5-page paper for midterm, two papers for the final. No classwork except about 100 pages per week reading.

Steven Marrone | HIST021 - Europe in the High Middle Ages | History2004-04-12

Review:
I highly recommend this class if you want to have a professor who clearly organizes/outlines his lectures and sticks to them. His lecture style makes it so that you feel you're listening to a story than trying to remember a date/time/person/place for an exam; therefore, it's easier to remember and digest a lot of information. He is very passionate about the history he speaks of and has great enthusiasm in trying to get you to be as passionate as well. He's a genuinely nice guy, too. Always ready to help and answer questions, he's very easy to get in touch with and knows material very well.

Workload:
One 5-page paper for midterm grade. Class discussions once a week based on mainly primary sources. Two separate 5-page papers counting as final grade. Lecture three times a week for 50 minutes.
