Courses: Topics in Middle English: Medieval Performance (COMLH301B01)

Spring 2015

This seminar will examine the construction and representation of sex and gender in the Middle Ages. Our focus will be on medieval texts (polemic, drama, lyric, narrative, autobiography), but we will accompany these primary readings with secondary readings in feminist and queer theory and the history of the body, as well a couple of contemporary novels which revise or reread medieval texts and ideas.
