Quarter Taken: Winter 2017 Submitted March 21, 2017 Grade Received: N/A

This course has a HUGE focus on Islam and is not a general anthropology of religion class. He is a very disorganised lecturer and the exams are tough, he offered a makeup for the midterm but was very misleading about its format and content. He also said there would be two short answers in the final - turns out this was actually 2 22 mark essays worth half your grade. The final was full of mistakes. He takes a long time to post slides online and they often miss out key information and terms. Interesting content and readings but would not recommend due to the poor organisation and standard of the exams.

This class should be called Anthropology of Islam. As much as I found it interesting, his lectures are not clear at all and he scribbles incoherent things on the board. His expectations are sometimes unrealistic and he purposefully tricked half of our class when it came to a midterm makeup exam. Take this class at your own risk.
