Iran and Persianate World
Winter 2023 - There is literally just an in class midterm and a take home paper final. That is all. So, workload is obviously manageable but there is a LOT of content to be covered in this class. The lectures aren't technically mandatory (he doesn't take attendance) but he does not post the lecture slides on BruinLearn, in an attempt to encourage students to come to class. Green is so knowledgeable on the subject that it may sometimes become overwhelming-- a lot of his lectures are often so packed with information that I would definitely recommend doing the weekly readings so that you know what's going on. There isn't a lot of background information provided, he kind of throws you into all of the content because he is so familiar with it, so you are going to need to be proactive and learn on your own if you want to do well. That being said, very straight forward midterm and final. If you put in the time and work, you will get an A.
