FWIS 167 – Rice University Spring 2013
What are your reflections on the syllabus and the structure of the course?
I think the course sounds like it will be interesting overall. I think it will work very well for developing writing skills, especially for research papers. I like the focus on the internet the class offers.
I am excited for this semester! I think “The Rise and Fall of Atlantic Slavery” is going to be my favorite course this semester. The topics seem interesting and I look forward to some discussions over the texts. I expect to grow as a writer and make friends.
I am looking forward to taking this class and developing a deeper understanding of the concept of slavery, how it came about, and its effect on the world. I chose my subtopic to be that of Racial Ideology because I am hoping that it will also give me a chance to focus, not only on which concept (racism or slavery) came first, but to see how slavery has influenced the judgement of all races involved.
I’m really excited about the class. It looks like a really interesting subject with a good variety of assignments.
The course workload looks a bit heavy to me, but doable and well worth it – Inhuman Bondage is fascinating so far. Looking forward to some great discussions!
I just switched into this class yesterday, but I’m looking forward to meeting everyone! From what I’ve seen and read so far, the course material and assignments will be interesting. I particularly think the Internet-based assignments will complement the course and our understanding of the material.
