Tufts University: Mark Karlins - English - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Goodness... Mark Karlins is an enigma. He constantly urged students to participate in discussion, but never really got anywhere with it. I found him to be mysterious - a little too mysterious for my liking. Nice guy though, and really genuine. I felt that he wanted to get somewhere in the class and change people's lives, but he was unable to because the class lacked direction. A lot of reading on weird/specific topics (i.e. Elvis, Joseph Campbell) but he never really tied them in with one another. At the end of the class, he was open to criticism though.
Not terrible. The workload consisted of 4 papers which were short analytical pieces (3 pages) and one final paper which was a research assignment (5-8 pages). He never handed out any guidelines and the assignments were often vague and difficult to write about. But, nonetheless, they were interesting!
