HIS 321 - Joan of Arc: History, Myth and Representation


There are few figures in late medieval European history who have generated as much interest and controversy as the illiterate Maid of Lorraine, Joan of Arc. A pivotal figure in the ongoing saga of the Hundred Years’ War (1337-1453), Joan’s short life (1412-1431), death and canonization as a Roman Catholic saint are laden with paradoxes for modern historians who seek to understand the intersection of the religious, political and cultural forces that her story embodies. This course offers rich opportunities for the study of her life and an analysis of the dynamic interplay of social class, gender identity and religious conformity in late medieval European society. Course Codes: H. Prereq: PEQ in History, or one history class.
