Comment: Amazing professor. If you are unsure what Rhetoric is or whether or not you want to major in it, Esmeir will convince you. She is passionate about making sure students in Rhetoric excel and she is incredibly knowledgeable in the materials she teaches. She lets Rhetoric live up to its interdisciplinary name - one day you're reading about Dworkin and legal interpretation, then Freud and Dreams, then Haraway's feminist critique through the Cyborg Manifesto

Comment: Esmeir is great! She's passionate about what she does. She makes even the densest readings easy to follow. The class is super challenging, but extremely engaging. There are only three main essays and each is weighted about 30%, the rest is discussion. Make sure to check in with the GSI and ask about your essays, as s/he will be in charge of your grade.

Comment: I absolutely adored the way she lectures. So clear, so helpful, and that accent of hers is so beautiful that it sometimes would wake me up from my sleepiness since it was an 8am. The texts can be extremely dense at times but she is not afraid to use drawings and charts and diagrams to simplify the texts and repeats them to ensure that they are ingrained in our minds. During the few Office hours I went to, she was extremely patient and helpful and listens to you very attentively. Very approachable. Her exams were a bit challenging, and I didn't get the grade that I wanted, but she grades fairly. Go to her OH for help, it's the biggest thing i regret from this class. I really wish I could have done better because this class was extremely helpful and interesting for me but due to the inflexibility and conflicts of my schedule, I couldn't attend office hours. Also, it was an 8am class which absolutely sucked but oh well. I learned a lot and would definitely recommend for you to take any class that she teaches.
