Description
What do the terms "medieval" and "renaissance" mean, and how are they connected to our lives today? By the end of this course, you will be able to recognize and comphrehend the characteristics of the Medieval and Renaissance Eras and to confidently think, talk, and write about them! The student should be able to evaluate the momentous transition(s) from Medieval to Renaissance culture through themes of change such as religious schism and reform (values and spirituality), family and social structures (social and political systems), the plague (medicine), the Little Ice Age (environment), and the birth of print culture (technology). In addition we will practice translating, interpreting, and critiquing culturally and linguistically diverse works in literature, philosophy, and visual and performing arts so that we may connect Medieval and Renaissance insights to western culture -- how did these eras in Europe shape the values of modern Americans?
