You've seen "Game of Thrones." Now, learn about the real Middle Ages. By reading primary sources from the period together, we will examine the religious, political, and cultural transformations that re-made Europe in the Middle Ages. We will examine the Crusades, the Black Death, the Papacy, knights, and peasants. We will come to understand how Europe emerged from the margins of the world's stage. But we will also ask, who belonged to this emerging world and who was steadily excluded? We will ask, where did the idea of nations come from? And we will ask, what is the relationship between the real Middle Ages and the one of modern fantasy?

Course Requirements:

Two short papers and two exams

Intended Audience:

All undergraduate students

Class Format:

Two lectures and one discussion section per week
