FREN 10.18 The Medieval Mirror of Ourselves

Perhaps more than any other era, the Middle Ages inspired modern French literature. Things medieval intrigued writers and artists throughout the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, with interest at its strongest during the nineteenth century's rise in national pride and focus on national origins. But artists and scholars also looked beyond medieval literature to traditions in architecture, interior decoration, and pictorial art.  The Middle Ages served as a mirror in which French people contemplated both their identity and their destiny. Present still today throughout France in cities, symbols, churches and documents, the medieval period has continued to solicit our imaginations in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
