Literature, Art, and Music in the Age of Chaucer: An Interdisciplinary Online Course in the Humanities

Sylvia P. Rogers Ph.D..

Literature, Art, and Music in the Age of Chaucer is a demonstration of an interdisciplinary and fully online course that will be in progress at the time of the conference. Writers, artists, and composers presented in the course include Dante, Chaucer, Langland, the Gawain-poet, Malory, Giotto, Van Eych, and Machaut, among others. The presentation will address issues of pedagogy in an online environment and consider how an interdisciplinary approach to the period can serve to bridge differences of distance and time.
