Teaching

Over the years I have taught undergraduate courses on early medieval Europe (usually defined as AD 400-1000), the decline and fall of the Roman Empire, The Franks, Merovingians and Carolingians, barbarian law and society, the Age of Gregory of Tours, early Anglo-Saxon England, the Age of Bede, the conversion of Europe, Charlemagne, the Vikings, Vikings and Normans, Medieval Britain 1066-1500, science fiction and American society, American utopias; in addition, at York, under the aegis of “Discipline of History”, I co-taught History and Literary Criticism, History and Anthropology, and History and Myth, while under the aegis of “Comparative Specials” I co-taught Armies and Society, Race and Society, Utopias, Varieties of Christianity and probably others… And these are only the ones I remember.

Most recently, since retirement, I have taught at Anglia Ruskin University on “Myth and Medievalism” (Spring Semester 2013) and “The History of the English Language” (Autumn Semester 2013).

For this latter course I am using Albert C. Baugh and Thomas Cable, A History of the English Language (sixth edition) (Abingdon: Routledge, 2013). I shall put up a little mini-essay here called “What You Can Learn from Baugh and Cable” in the next few days.
