MDVL 5000 - Interdisciplinary Studies in Medieval Culture

An interdisciplinary course organized around selected topics in medieval and Renaissance studies. The focus may be in a specific period (The Twelfth Century), a religious movement (Monasticism), a political structure (Venice-A Renaissance City-State), or the social fabric (Medieval People: Image and Reality). In each case faculty from several departments will approach the semester’s topic from the perspective and with the methodological tools of their respective disciplines, such as art, history, literature, music, philosophy, political science, and religion. The overall aim of the course is to demonstrate to students why one needs to acquire a variety of disciplines to understand a single complex problem, and how to put traditional building blocks together in new ways.

Credits: 3 hrs.

Notes: Open to Upperclass and Graduate Students. The course may be repeated for credit with a different topic.
