Good to Think
The posts in this blog were written by the students in Prof. Rachel Fulton Brown's "Animals in the Middle Ages" at the University of Chicago during Autumn quarter 2010. The posts were assigned as reflections on the discussions that we had had in class on the readings assigned in the syllabus, but quickly grew into profound meditations on the problems of thinking about and with animals as seen through the art, literature, philosophy, theology, culture and society of Europe in the High Middle Ages. We hope very much that you enjoy reading our reflections and feel free to comment. For her part, Prof. Fulton Brown hopes to return to the question of thinking about animals in her future research as her students have taught her this quarter how very much more there is to learn. Thanks!
