If you have any comments, suggestions, complaints, etc. about one (or more) of my courses (e.g., what readings did you really like or think ought to be removed?), I’d love to hear them. We really don’t get much feedback through the student evaluations.
Also, if you have any feedback about this page, I’d like to hear that too. My email address is below.
