English Research Areas: Medieval & Early Modern

A general introduction to resources related to the research areas of the English department.

Medieval & Early Modern

From the English Department:

Challenging traditional notions of periodization, medievalists and early modernists at Iowa bring insights from contemporary theory to bear on the diverse literary and cultural history of Britain before 1700. We offer a wide range of courses that explore the clash of competing cultures, the development of a vernacular literature, the growth of national identity, the impact of new technologies, the effects of religious reform, and the rise of the commercial theatre. Students benefit from related courses in History, Art History, Theatre, Music, and the Center for the Book.
