This course will examine the history of medieval England and France from 1050-1400, covering both classic works and cutting-edge scholarship. It will focus on the theme of "rulers and regions." It will include the development of distinct regions of France and England (and neighboring areas in northwestern Europe), including the rise of principalities, attempts to establish royal power, notions of ethnicity, political identity, and order. It will also consider the possibilities for doing research on the various regions.
