Primary Instructor:

This seminar has two primary goals. The first is to read the Romance of the Rose, one of the most influential literary texts of the French Middle Ages, and we’ll take the entire semester to explore this complex work. The second goal of the seminar is to use the Romance of the Rose to explore a wide variety of approaches to medieval literature (and to literature more broadly). We will explore readings of the romance through narratology, psychoanalysis, historicism, ecology, classical reception, translation theory, feminist theory, gender theory, and queer theory, among other approaches.

Course Requirements:

Requirements include weekly responses to reading assignments, an in-class presentation, and a final research paper.
