Medieval Europe (including Britain) experienced profound transformation between 1000 CE and 1500 CE. Built upon the institutions of early Christian Europe and the remnants of classical civilization, the high and late Middle Ages produced many of the social, cultural, intellectual, religious, legal, and political institutions that still operate in Europe and the European diaspora today. Investigation of the medieval period is thus interdisciplinary and requires flexible approaches to a wide range of written and material sources. Working closely with the course instructor, senior undergraduate students will work on a narrowly focussed topic of their choice within the framework of the course topic. This course will require students to hone their skills in primary and secondary research, clear communication and presentation, and written argumentation.

Prerequisite(s): 6 credit units of senior-level HIST of which 3 credit units must be 300-level or permission of the department.
Note: Students may take this course more than once for credit, provided the topic covered in each offering differs substantially. Students must consult the Department to ensure that the topics covered are different.
