COURSE DESCRIPTION: this course is from the ENGL 4900 series, English Studies I, which are course in special areas of English studies, including literature, language, composition and the teaching of English. This particular course focuses on "Gender and Sexuality in Medieval World Literature."
As an upper-division world literature elective, this course includes authors from various early literary cultures, including medieval Arabic, Chinese, English, Ethiopian, French, German, Japanese, Latin, Mongolian, Persian, Sanskrit, and Welsh. From lyric poetry and romance to saints’ lives and letters, the premodern primary sources in the class represent a variety of literary forms as well as visual artworks. Reading premodern world literature and art alongside gender studies scholarship and feminist theory, we will examine how literary works comment upon and construct gender and sexuality.
