open thread: good classes?

Not limited to spring semester--which courses and/or professors have given you a kick in the pants and made you feel lucky to attend this school? In the fall, Robin D. G. Kelley's course on Black Intellectuals overflowed with shoppers; which superstars are generating buzz this time? Share the wealth, people.

Poetry classes at Harvard are pretty amazing, I think. Peter Sacks is currently teaching Fundamentals of Lyric Poetry, and the way he insists on people making a connection between poetry and real life (e.g., today he read the Edward Thomas poem "The Owl" and drew a connection between its final lines and the idea of being aware of modern-day crises like Guantanamo and the war in Iraq) might appeal especially to you.

The Soc 96s are really good, and open to nonconcentrators. They all involve a decent amount of fieldwork, which I love but can be time consuming. I took 96b "Street Level Democracy" in the fall, the one being offered in the spring is 96j "Research for Nonprofits."

Anybody know any good LitArts classes? I have to take A, B and C, and honestly can't seem to find anything good. The only two I'm interested in (Chinese Litterati and the Russian avant-garde one) meet during other classes I have. Do any of the others deserve a second look?

History 1918: Colonialism in African History. The effects of that period are still being felt today, of course. Look what humans do to each for capitalist interests.

For Hist B, I really liked B-53, WWI with Maier. He's a pretty good professor, and lecture is like listen to your grandfather talk to you about the war. WWII is better, but not offered till next spring.

Another vote for LA-A86 Protest Literature - I took it last year and it was AWESOME.

Also, Hist of Sci 175 Madness and Medicine looks great. I shopped it today not expecting much but it seems like a great course.

Also, Psy 1508 Psychology of Leadership looks like a very easy yet character-developing course, and it counts for concentration reqs in psych, gov, and ec.

Forgot to say, HistSci 175 counts for Hist A core.

Moral Reasoning 66: Moral Reasoning about Social Protest...sort of wack professor (in terms of lecturing ability, as far as I've gauged) but great readings and hopefully lively sections.
