Topics in Medieval Literature: Medieval Personhood

This year's seminar explores the varieties of medieval personhood, with particular attention to limit cases: sovereigns, outcasts and outlaws, saints, monsters and hybrid creatures, the civilly and the truly dead, and ghosts. All texts are read in translation, though close study of the originals is encouraged wherever possible.
