Professor Mahon is a great lecturer. To me, she was hip and very lively with her lectures. The books we had to read were very interesting. The class overall teaches you about different cultures and just a way of living. I have learned so much from this class. I know I will use my new knowledge in the future for just life, in general. Take Mahon, she's good.
This class was a breath of fresh air! It was so nice to be taught by someone who is passionate about the material and truly cares about her students. I actually looked forward to coming to her class, which NEVER happens in my other classes. There was a lot of reading, but the TAKE-HOME papers were based on all of it, so it was worth the time. Prof. Mahon is incredibly approachable and leads great discussions in class instead of just lecturing. I would recommend her to anyone, even if you're not an anthro major (which i'm not) because you will learn things about life, not just what is in the textbooks.
