Tufts University: Peter Winn - History - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Professor Winn is extremely intelligent and ties together information in a very interesting way. The class, however, is large and lecture style. There is no class participation at all with Professor Winn, only in discussion sections with TAs. He is friendly enough if you approach him, but does not have office hours and tells you to talk to your TAs if you have problems. You learn a lot in class and it is interesting, but mostly about colonialism.

INSANE amounts of reading. I would say the reading averaged 300+ pages per week, TWO midterm papers, a few short response essays, and a long final essay. So much reading that no one did it. You still learn a lot in the lectures, but unless this is the only class you are taking you will never get through all the work and you need to figure out which assignments are the most important.
