Comment:
I think he can lead UofS to a genderless society. Na-ur-turNeGOtiates. The logic of Capitalism, south of THAT WALL (lol), assigns discourses of gend(er)-ientation. He can free us from patriarchal bifurcated tropes, the prison of gender; leading a group of elect LGBTQI persons. His class inspired me: leave school and take up urban port-midwifery.

A path-breaking, progressive scholar. He has an illuminating insight into the rubric and discourse of administration and leadership.

Comment:
I've only had him for seminars, so I can't say anything about his lectures. However, I learned a lot, he's very clear on his expectations, and I didn't feel as though I was drowning with work, even though there were weekly writing assignments. I would take another class from him.

By far the best prof i ever had. He is super approachable and is always willing to hear you out and give you a helping hand. Has a great sense of humour and keeps the class captivated. I suggest taking a class with him just to have the experience, whether you need the class or not.

Easily one of the best profs I've had. The lectures are always fun and interesting. The tutorial work he assigns are relavent and add flavour to the class. He is a very approachable guy, that will always help you. Plus, he has an obsession with the NY Yankees! I talked baseball for about 30 minutes in his office.

Probably the best prof I've ever had. He is such a captivating lecturer that really makes you think. When he came to tutorials it was even better as he really got the discussion flowing. It is a hard class...those exams are writer's cramp! I worked very hard even though this was an elective for me and I still was below my average by about 5%.

Good Professor, makes you work hard for tutorials with weekly assingments, but if you are willing to discuss then the tutorials are easy mark boosters and overall he marks fairly, makes you learn and i found him incredibly entertaining. I would definitely take another class from this guy.

Great prof. Very smart man who stimulates interst in the material and delivers it clearly. Expects some work in the tutorial assignments but the exmas are easy and fairly marked. Anyone who has the opportunity to take a class of his should.

Yeah, Gordo was a decent prof. But a strange man. He went on endlessly about Aberdeen and Lawrence Welk. It scared me, to be honest.

DesBrisay is very organized so that his lectures are jam packed. He's the kind of prof that makes you hang on his last words. He's very personable and helped me out through a rough patch. The assignments aren't easy but they are designed so that you learn as much as he's willing to teach you and thats alot. TAKE HIS CLASS!

clear, fairly interesting, class moves quickly, covers wide range of topics, tests are pretty easy, he gives you a really good idea of what's going to be on them before they happen. assignments require a good bit of work, but he marks fairly and is a pretty nice guy. Adds nice personal touches to the lectures.
