Ever wanted to read Beowulf in the original? Ever wanted to communicate clearly if you time-travel back to pre-Conquest England? Then this is the Paideia class for you! In this course we will review the basic pronunciation, vocabulary, and grammatical structures of Old English (the phase of the English language spoken between about 700-1100 CE). Students completing this course will be well-positioned to engage further study and translation of Old English texts, either independently or in small groups. Led by Michael Faletra.
