Castles have served as fortifications, as complex communities and homes, as class markers of wealth and position--and their loss--and, equally important, as unique symbols of both fictional and real pasts.The educational objectives include: an understanding of medievalism as it is manifested in the later castles that take their cue from the earlier ones; an understanding of the physical manifestation of medievalism will, in turn, contribute to an understanding of Arthurian literature and romance, which began in the Middle Ages, but has been appropriated and greatly added to--like a castle--ever since. The early and late literatures and the palatial domiciles of each age reveal the cultural values and ideals as well as certain political and economic realities of the times in which they were built, captured, rebuilt, and reinvented altogether.
During the embedded travel component, housing will consist of hotel/hostel overnight accommodations.
The process for enrolling in an embedded course varies according to the instructor and/or department. The program leader has indicated that in order to enroll in the course and travel component, students of InArt & Engl190Q (medievalism) will have priority, followed by honors students. Announcements will be made in class and at Honors Club/Program meetings on the Monday after Labor Day. Students will set up interviews for September & October 2019.
