Animal Lives: The Environmental Humanities in Medieval and Early Modern Literature from Spain

Scholars have increasingly recognized the importance of the humanities, particularly literary studies, in addressing the environmental crisis.  Golden Age Literature (Spanish 5362) joins the environmental humanities by focusing on literature from medieval and early modern Spain. It pays special attention to how the study of literature gives students tools to better understand and empathize with the lives of real, individual animals.

Course counts toward Certificate in Medieval and Renaissance Studies.
