Comment: I took the Chinese Cinema DeCal. It was a very good class. However, you have to write a 1 page response for most movie you watched in class.

Comment: Prof. Jones is really cool and knows his stuff. However, there's just a lot of reading and essays are graded pretty tough, so don't expect an A in this class unless you are brilliant with your writing...

Comment: Professor Jones is very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about his subject, but his lectures are a bit on the dry side. He's prone to going off on tangents, but he does bring in outside relevant topics to discuss during class. He also offers a lot of outside opportunity to further explore the subject and because he's so knowledgeable, he knows a lot of outside lectures and symposiums that are going on.

Comment: Grade consisted of participation in discussion, 2 brief responses, 2 long papers, attendance, and the final. The professor was very enthusiastic about his material and assignments were more than reasonable. The readings were given in manageable quantities, but sometimes tended to be quite long. The final was somewhat difficult.. best to attend class regularly and do all readings.

Comment: Professor Jones was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The grade was based on three essays and a final. We were required to watch a few movies outside of class, but this wasn't a problem as most of the movies were quite interesting. Assigned a lot of reading, most of which I didn't do, but they were immensely helpful references when writing papers. Jones gave great insight into dissection of media and cultural artifacts in general, felt like I learned quite a bit from this course.

Comment: This is a really interesting class that looks at East Asia in a unique perspective. I really enjoyed the class itself, and most of the readings were incredibly interesting. Jones is a great professor, but do not expect this class to be easy, you need to write well to do well.

Comment: Super nice professor! Really knowledgeable about music and Chinese culture and is always willing to talk to students outside class - by far the most responsive Professor I've had to email.
