Assessment
and Goals
:

This course will acquaint students with different types of the marvelous in medieval and renaissance texts--supernatural and divine interventions, "mirabilia" observed and reported from distant and exotic lands. Students will learn how to analyze a variety of texts, research secondary sources, and write their own responses to the works under consideration. Students will write 4-5 papers in which they demonstrate proficiency in French expository prose and mature rhetorical strategies for convincing readers. They will also reinforce oral proficieny by giving at least two presentations in class.

Rationale for
Changes or
Exceptions
:

THIS COURSE ALLOWS STUDENTS TO STUDY THE QUESTION OF WONDER AND THE SPIRIT OF INQUIRY IN SCIENTIFIC AND LITERARY TEXTS FROM THE MIDDLE AGES UNTIL THE SCIENTIFIC REVOLUTION.
