6. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
Most valuable for me is the history and commonalities of each Indonesian region. Showing images of the subject that the professor spoke about helped ingrane the connection between oral and visual. He is very knowledgeable in the course because he had experienced it personally and literally.
The entire course has been extremely valuable to me. I enrolled in this class because I wanted to increase my limited knowledge of Southeast Asian tribal art. The class has more than met my expectations. The notes and photographs that I have will supplement me art history library and be incorporated into other classes that I take back in California. I look forward to each class session for the new information that Dr. Feldman provides in his lectures. He is an excellent professor. I hope to return to UH next summer to enroll in another one of his classes.

comprehensive survey of similarities of this region. lectures key to understanding slide images. professor is really the source of knowledge here.
Tribal Indonesian art is a lot common to Hawaiian art. This course might help to understand Hawaiian art.

13. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
No suggestions right now. Professor Feldman was very prepared and encouraged us students to be prepared also by letting us know that the images for his lectures are available in Laulima for us to download/print out before each class. He also informed us about local places where a few examples of these images are displayed, that we may go see them for ourselves. His teaching style is very helpful and effective in learning the subject.
None...every aspect is fine.
Teaching method is effective since the subject matter is very broad, the instructor is very knowledgeable. Hopefully if there's a book for students to refer to it would be helpful.
The bibliography or list of books was very helpful. In future, perhaps selecting some texts or essays from them and making pdf versions available would be helpful study guides. Making the test outlines available a couple days before the test is always good. Because of the rapid travel through the various regions/islands, it would be great if there was a tiny projection or screen of a map with the region of focus highlighted always off to the side. Good for keeping geological bearings straight, for the visually inclined.

17. Other comments:
The handouts that we had to download ourselves were very valuable and still are and will be valuable because it makes a good reference. The subject in this course is valuable and made me think about who my ancestors were and where they came from. What I learned and am still learning has given me a clearer understanding of who I am and how others are in this particular area of the world and that we are all evidently related....whether we know it or not....I'm glad I learnd about it and I hope more people will. Thank you for allowing Professor Feldman teach this subject here at UH Manoa this summer. I would also thank Professor Mo Sato for advising/suggesting for me to take this class, he was absolutely right. I am enjoying the class and benefiting from it.
none.. class was very interesting and fun! awesome! ;)
The class was very informative, interesting, and thought-provoking. This area of art is agreeably one that has yet to be thoroughly appreciated & understood in larger, complete context.
