Tufts University: Christina Sharpe - English - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Christina Sharpe | ENG147 - American Women Writers| English2004-04-08

Review:
First things first: Prof. Sharpe is an intelligent and thoughtful professor. However, that did little to make her class worthwhile for me. First, her syllabus is 'organized' by week rather than date, and changes frequently making it very difficult to follow what is going on. Second, and most importantly to me, 'tolerant of alternative views' is definitely not a way in which I would describe her teaching. She has a correct opinion, and simply talks over anyone who tries to offer their own opinion if it differs from hers in any discernable way. This, along with her formal manner and continuous efforts to stay "PC" make the class very surface level even when it deals with controversial and dense subject matter.

People who should take this class: People who orient themselves to the world in terms of race (would agree that "Into the Wild" was a book about race) or gender, like to use air quotes, or are the stereotypical real airy English major.

People who shouldn't take this class: People who like to get into debates, or people who are more analytical.
