DLCL 12: Humanities Core: Great Books, Big Ideas -- Europe, Medieval to Early Modern (ENGLISH 112A, FRENCH 12)

This three-quarter sequence asks big questions of major texts in the European and American tradition. What is a good life? How should society be organized? Who belongs? How should honor, love, sin, and similar abstractions govern our actions? What duty do we owe to the past and future? The second quarter focuses on the transition from the Middle Ages to Modernity, Europe's re-acquaintance with classical antiquity and its first contacts with the New World. Authors include Dante, Shakespeare, Machiavelli, Cervantes, and Milton.

This course takes students on a trip to eight capital cities, at different moments in time: Renaissance Florence, Golden Age Madrid, Colonial Mexico City, Enlightenment and Romantic Paris, Existential and Revolutionary St. Petersburg, Roaring Berlin, Modernist Vienna, and bustling Buenos Aires. While exploring each place in a particular historical moment, we will also consider the relations between culture, power, and social life. How does the cultural life of a country intersect with the political activity of a capital? How do large cities shape our everyday experience, our aesthetic preferences, , and our sense of history? Why do some cities become cultural capitals? Primary materials for this course will consist of literary, visual, sociological, and historical documents (in translation); authors we will read include Boccaccio, Lope de Vega, Sor Juana, Montesquieu, Baudelaire, Dostoyevsky, Irmgard Keun, Freud, and Borges.

DLCL 122: The Digital Middle Ages

How can we make historical materials, social and cultural practices and extant sites accessible in the present day? In this course, students will have the opportunity to design and create an innovative digital project based on a medieval primary source. In the first part of the course, we will familiarize ourselves with medieval European cultural history, focusing on different kinds of sources, including historical and religious texts, narrative and music, architecture, images, objects, and textiles. Then we will examine and evaluate digital resources and approaches to medieval sources, including digital facsimiles, experiments with virtual spaces, and informational sites. In order to contemporize and vivify the medieval, an integral component of this course will be the California Missions, since they so dramatically represent a medieval modus operandi in a modern, and, for Stanford, local, world.
