Course is "Intro Emphasis for the Major."
An investigation of the evolution of both the English language and the concept of Englishness. This course will explore the literature of the British Isles ca. 1000-1500, including Anglo-Saxon, Welsh, Latin, Anglo-Norman and Middle English. We will consider the ways that Germanic, Celtic and Classical mythologies contribute to a sense of what it means to be "English", and also the impact of the Crusades and Crusade literature upon what it means to be "Western".
