I fucking hate my medieval literature class!

And not because of the ridiculous high-school politics taking place in the back row, though those do annoy me to no end.

I can' t believe this prof is allowed to teach. I'm pretty sure she HATES medieval literature, so why the fuck did they give her that class? Maybe it's because she speaks french and german so they figured she must be into medieval lit or something.

It's like the 18th century english prof who was given a kidlit class because we don't have enough kidlit profs and he has a child, so he MUST be qualified! WTF.

This woman teaches as if she was brought up in the ninteenth century. She's telling us stuff like "medieval writers never wrote to make a statment; they only care about form". I guess that entire course I took on medieval rhetoric was just a bunch of lies then, I should believe that essay you brought in from 19fucking70. Excuse me for being a little skeptical about what a new-bibliographic formalist has to say about medieval poetry.

Haha this rant is pretty medievalist-specific, but there you go. For making courses based on theories that have been outdated and disproved for thirty years, I hate UBC.

somewhat comforting to know other departments have bias, spin, factions, etc. even though im in poli sci and i like to believe (since its that convenient) that our department is the worst when it comes to petty politics.
