GERM 42.10 Naughty Nuns, Rowdy Knights and Feisty Poets: The German Middle Ages (in English)

This course investigates instances of rebellion against worldly and spiritual powers in fictional and nonfictional texts of the German Middle ages.  Case studies include gender roles in the twelfth century correspondence of Hildegard of Bingen, the undermining of the court’s strict code of heroic behavior in chivalrous epics by thirteenth century courtly poets (Vogelweide, Straßburg) and the violation of sexual taboos and class borders in fourteenth century conduct literature. The course is taught in English.

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.
