Comment: Having lived in Japan and studied Japanese history for awhile, Professor Berry really knows her stuff. Her Edo period lecture was really fantastic, and the readings were actually quite enjoyable (there were pictures! Pictures!) office hours were also fun because conversation was more indepth and personal. She's a great lecturer!
HISTORY 118A (Fall 2012)
Comment: A great class! Professor Berry is an amazing lecturer, and the subject matter is fascinating for non majors too. Exams are very straightforward IDs and essays--no tricks; there are three, short, open ended papers; and the readings are very entertaining! Highly recommended class. Also, a big thanks to Chris Bovbjerg for being a fantastic GSI!
