Student’s questions could not be heard

After the second episode I downgraded my review from five to three stars. Although this is a classroom setting I felt that the experience was diminished because I could not hear student’s questions and the discussion becomes one sided. The good perfessor does not always repeat the (unheard) question and it detracts from my enjoyment of the course. Otherwise these podcasts are well thought out and very thought provoking and relevant to my life.

Very good

Rank #1: Part 1: Racialized Citizenship in the U.S. and "Problem" of the Filipino

Podcast cover
Read more
In this quick discussion of contemporary Filipino immigrant issues, Rodriguez explains how the "three basic problems" as discussed in Bulosan, explain emigration from the Philippines. The class transitions from a focus on the Philippines to Filipinos' early experiences in the U.S. Rodriguez discusses how race has shaped who is able to claim formal membership (i.e. citizenship in the United States) and begins to sketch out how this impacted Filipinos as U.S. "nationals" (neither quite citizens, and neither quite foreigners).
