G-LSUD3 EnLit340 Medievalism

Course type



The course examines a series of myths, legends, and literary themes that appear in contemporary popular literature and culture but have their origins in the Middle Ages. We will examine what these myths may have meant in their original context and how their meaning changes as they are used in contemporary fiction and cinema. We will also consider the ideological implications of the presence of such material in contemporary popular culture.
It is desirable, though not absolutely necessary, for students to have passed Lit 6-240 Medieval Literature, or an Introduction to Cultural Studies, before attempting this course.
