The Newberry Library Anglo-Saxon Seminar

Having attended a few of these in my graduate student days, including one by Allen Frantzen, I can only highly recommend these to any grad student in the consortium.


Center for Renaissance Studies

The Anglo-Saxon Seminar:
Masculinity and the Anglo-Saxons

2010-11 Graduate Seminar

2:00-5:00 pm Fridays, January 7 – March 11, 2011
Professor Allen Frantzen, Loyola University Chicago

The class will focus 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
(handouts), reading will include
excerpts from Clare A. Lees, ed.,
Medieval Masculinities.

Class meetings will be divided
between Old English—reviewing
the basics of grammar as we
translate—and analyzing the cultural
and theoretical aspects of
masculinity in our readings. Advanced skills in Old English are not required,
just familiarity with the basics acquired in an introductory course. Two papers,
one at the mid-point (6-7 pp.) and one at the end of the course (10-12 pp.);
Loyola students and others on a semester calendar will have until mid-April to
complete the final paper requirement.

Prerequisite: An introductory course in Old English.

Enrollment is limited. To register, contact the Newberry Library Center for Renaissance Studies. To
receive credit you must also enroll in either a Newberry course at your campus (available at several
Chicago-area schools) or an independent study; the course is cross-listed at Loyola University Chicago as
as English 540. Please contact the consortium Representative Council member at your home institution
for your university’s policies and to apply for travel reimbursement.

When I initially commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added"
checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four
e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
