Department Section Description: 

The course has two general aims: to examine late medieval English education (Chapel Schools, Trivium, Quadrivium, Rhetoric, Inns of Court, select university curriculi) so students gain an understanding of the contours of formal education available in and close to Chaucer's London; and to work on contemporary pedagogical theories and practices that have direct bearing on teaching Chaucer in the 21st century. We will focus on the more commonly taught Canterbury Tales, though not exclusively.
