Tufts University: Lee Edelman - English - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Lee Edelman | ENG081 - Postmodernism and Film| English2004-07-14

Review:
Edelman is one brilliant professor. He is probably one of the most intelligent and articulate people I've ever met. He is very interested in the material and wants students to be interested too. He demands intellectualism from his students and not just intelligence. While discussion in class was often limited to a few student comments trying to guess what Edelman was thinking (which was the only flaw of class), he strongly encouraged people to write on blackboard, which students often did, especially in the beginning of the course. Even though the class was decently large (and dark), Edelman made an effort to learn everyone's name and did a decent job if you spoke in class. There were also two TAs who basically just graded papers. Postmodernism and Film has been one of the few classes at Tufts that has truly made me think hard. The theories we read for the class are difficult, but Edelman presents them in an accessible way and asks you to think critically about them in applying them to film. Before taking the class, I didn't take film studies seriously, but I am now in another film class and want to take more, preferably with Edelman.

Workload:
The course load for the class was very reasonable. Watch one movie a week, and then read an article or two. The reading is dense theory, but not impossible. There were two 5 page papers and a final which was relatively easy.
