The Anglo-Saxon Seminar: Masculinity and the Anglo-Saxons
The class focused on models of male identity and various scales of masculinity as they emerge from a selection of the most famous Old English poems, including “The Wanderer,” “The Seafarer,” and “The Battle of Maldon,” and from Old English prose texts. In addition to some supplementary texts, reading will included excerpts from Clare A. Lees, ed., Medieval Masculinities.
