CHUMS 5600 Medieval History and Literature

At the conclusion of this course, the student will have a broad-based understanding of European and near Eastern history and literature from 600-1500 A.D., as demonstrated through in-class participation and assessment. A final research essay will demonstrate that the student has substantial knowledge of one set of primary texts from that period. The graduate student, through wide reading in secondary sources, will also have a familiarity with the critical and historiographical traditions of English medieval studies.




Prerequisites for undergraduates: CLITR 1100 or any 1000- or 2000-level CHIST or CHUMS course
