A blend of literature, culture, and gender theory, students in this course will apply medieval philosophies regarding love and romance to creative projects and will have the opportunity to analyze various elements of textile production and “women’s work” in medieval France through primary texts such as medieval Chansons de toile, Ovid’s Metamorphosis,and Marie de France’s Lais.
