The representation of lustful women in French medieval texts and arts. We will read some of the most important novels and short stories of the Middle Ages, such as La Châtelaine de Vergy, Tristan et Yseut, and Les Lais de Marie de France.
Throughout the semester students will become familiar with a great variety of texts and genre as well as their historical, cultural and artistic context. They will develop text analysis and critical thinking and improve oral and written French.

Explanation of how the course differs from similar GW courses
This course is truly unique: since it is taught in French with medieval French manuscripts, no other course on campus can train students to read and analyze these texts in their original forms. It is the only advanced medieval-era course in the French program, and any course in any other department would necessarily be in English and use translated texts.

Rollback: Syllabus is still missing most of the required elements. Please share email detailing these with relevant faculty. Also, it would be good to have the learning outcomes listed in the following manner. At the end of this course, students will be able to:1. Read and analyze a variety of medieval French texts in the genre. (2) Think critically about the effects of historical, cultural and artistic contexts on the representation of lustful women etc. etc.

Rollback: Please read the reviewer's comments before you revise. "Get familiar with" is not a good learning outcome as it is not specific. It is a good idea to think of how you would assess whether a course has achieved a learning outcome (or not) as you formulate the outcomes. I had provided you with some possible learning outcomes in my previous comments. Please use them or outcomes that are similarly more specific.
