COLT 10.12 Race in the Middle Ages

This course serves as an introduction to comparative literature by asking questions about race across time periods, genres, languages, and cultures.

What are the differences between medieval and modern conceptions of race? What do interfaith romances have to do with colorism? Why do contemporary artists of the African Diaspora refer to medieval European literature? Our studies will include canonical English authors (Chaucer), Arab travelers (Ibn Battuta), and contemporary artists.



Distributive and/or World Culture

Dist:LIT; WCult:CI

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.
