SPAN 4310: Saints, Sinners, and Spectacles in Early Modern Spain T/R 11-12:20

GERM 4321, Medieval and Early Modern Studies in German

This course will explore texts and ideas from the German-speaking areas of Europe written during the medieval and early modern periods. Together instructor and students will explore how intertwined ideas, values, and ideologies of politics, history, and religion were approached in those times. We’ll travel in time and space virtually to visit the sites, map places/spaces, see old manuscripts, look at pictures, hear sound in word and song, walk the walk of monks and nuns, Luther and the new Protestant ideas, and see how a messy Europe looked to the Crusades to unify itself. Furthermore, we’ll compare those values, beliefs, and ideologies to today’s. Taught in English (German students will do some reading in German.) Course prerequisites: none.

SPAN 4310. Saints, Sinners, and Spectacles in Early Modern Spain (3-0) This course will explore the image of the body and its role in intellectual and spiritual formation in the literature of medieval and early modern Spain. We will examine how the body is defined and manipulated within the context of the sexual, the spiritual, the profane, and the divine. Some of the key themes will include: the relationship between body and text, the regulation and control of the body, the imperfect, mutilated, and weak body, gender and authority, consuming bodies and eating communities, the body of the Other, the body as spectacle, and corporeal love and desire. Readings will include selections from medieval lyric poetry, medieval and early modern narrative, and Golden Age drama, as well as contemporary images of the body in films such as Fight Club, Thirteen, and María llena de gracia. Prerequisite: SPAN 3315 with a C or better.
