ENG 5880: Victorian Literature

ENG 5880 Victorian Literature will be taught by Dr. Jill Ehnenn this Fall 2021 semester. It will meet on Mondays from 5pm to 8pm to discuss the return of King Arthur and other Victorian Medievalisms. 

From Dr. Ehnenn,

"DRAGONS! Robin Hood, Joan of Arc, King Arthur, ballads, fairies and monsters. In this class we will explore how the literature, art, and culture of 19th century England adapted and appropriated themes and tropes from the nation’s real and imagined medieval past in order to comment upon the concerns of industrialization and modernity. Our multi-genre, interdisciplinary study will also encourage us to ponder our own varied adaptations of the past, today."
