"This seminar has been fantastic. The subject is fascinating, and I appreciated the class for its intimate setting and lively discussions. The professor was meticulous about inviting all voices to the table. It was hands down my favorite class of the semester and possibly my entire career at Berkeley so far. It helped me build my academic voice and confidence, which will be helpful in the future. I've met great people I can keep in touch with, and I know the professor would be glad to help out with anything I need or offer any guidance during the rest of my time at Berkeley (and beyond). An outstanding experience!"
