CL1025 The World, The Text, The Critic
CL3023 Medieval Culture: Margery Kempe and Geoffrey Chaucer
AR3090 Junior Seminar

Join this study trip that highlights the importance of medieval British literature, art, and
architecture for the development of modern and contemporary British culture. Visit
Canterbury, the destination of Geoffrey Chaucer’s 14th century pilgrims, and explore
its rich heritage. The following day, engage in on-sight lectures about the 19th and
20th century Neo-Gothic edifices and monuments that grace London, and discover
the immense influence of the medieval world on a city that served as a model for
countless other cities. Visits to the Victoria and Albert Museum, Tate Museum, and the
British Library (where the works of the Pre-Raphaelites, William Blake and his followers,
The Ancients, and the manuscripts of Augustus Pugin permit all to see how Britain’s
“antiquated past” was fundamental for the Romantic and Gothic Revival movements that
still inspire us in our post-modern age.
