The class will focus on social organization in medieval England from the reign of Alfred (d. 899) to 1500. The guiding questions for the class will be how was social order created, what constituted social disruption, and whether these notions change according to time period and social class? To understand these processes we will explore the social, religious, and political experiences of the aristocracy, urban dwellers, and peasantry; what were their daily lives like materially and culturally, and what did they view as threats to this life?
