Readings

Required Readings:
Almost all assigned readings for the course are primary sources; including readings as well as images and recordings. All primary sources can be found online or I will hand them out in class. IMPORTANT: You will need to download Zotero and create an account on the website. I will invite you to a Zotero group which will then automatically create files in your account with all of the online reading links. If you have any questions about this, feel free to come ask me.

Despite the occasionally long lists of sources, virtually all are excerpts; most weeks have less than 60 pages of reading and I have marked the total at the beginning of each assignment. To compliment these sources, we will be using the textbook Barbara Rosenwein, A Short History of the Middle Ages. For the essays of the course, you will have the task of comparing the primary assigned
material with appropriate secondary literature and preparing different types of writing assignments (see Assignments).
