ENGL 341 - Studies in the Renaissance

Semester Offered: Spring
1 unit(s)

(Same as MRST 341 ) Intensive study of selected Renaissance texts and the questions they raise about their context and interpretation. 

Topic for 2017/18b: Sex and the City in 1600: Gender, Marriage, Family, and Sexuality in Early Modern London. This course explores everyday life in the rapidly expanding early modern metropolis of London. We pay special attention to religious, social, legal as well as informal control mechanisms that influenced issues of gender, marriage, and sexuality in various layers of London society. We anchor our investigations in a handful of plays (mainly city comedies) by Beaumont, Dekker, Jonson, Marston, Middleton, and Shakespeare, but also discuss ballads, homilies, conduct books, legal and travel narratives, pamphlets and treatises, literary works by female authors, and other literary and non-literary texts. Zoltán Márkus.

One 2-hour period.
