In this course we will study the various crusading movements of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries from the perspectives of French, Muslim, and Jewish historians; through literary texts written in France; and through modern histories of the crusades. We’ll also look at a couple of recent films and other kinds of representations of the crusades to try to understand how, particularly in the wake of September 11, medieval crusades have come to stand as a modern emblem of Christian-Muslim conflict. Class discussion and readings mostly in French; some reading assignments in English. Course requirements include consistent class participation, a series of short reaction papers, and a research project to be carried out over the course of the semester and whose final form (paper? film? performance? website?) will be defined by the student.
