Tufts University: Jeffrey Taliaferro - Political Science - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Underrated by most students for a demeanor most often described as "pompous and assheaded". However, Professor Taliaferro prepares assiduously for class meetings, and almost always has a solid, theory-grounded argument to make within an hour or so. He tends to get annoyed with students who think they know and understand the material before reading it thoroughly, but if a bit of humility is brought along, he can teach a ton. Also makes it his business to know as many names in the class as humanly possible, which is nice.
A solid amount of reading, usually about 50 pages per week. Usually a midterm-paper with several stages graded (abstract, outline, final draft) and a final exam that tends to be relatively easy if most of the reading has been done.
