Description
This discussion-driven course examines how medieval history has been portrayed on the big screen. Our classroom discussions will focus on the historical foundations of three films and consider how the events they depict were understood by people living in the Middle Ages. Readings assignments will consist of medieval primary sources and secondary scholarship by modern authors; additional requirements include three research projects and an in-class research presentation. (Offered occasionally).
