Timetable 2021-22: Term 2

Tutor: Iván Parga Ornelas
Term 2 Timetable (January - March 2022). Thursdays 5-6:30 pm (GMT), starting 13th January 2022

During term 2 we will study the works of two Neo-Latin authors, in the first half we will read works by Leon Battista Alberti and in the second, by Thomas More. From Leon Battista Alberti we will read the Intercoenales (dinner conversations) and the satiric novel Momus. Both these works explore the human condition with a bitter and poignant irony that is characteristic of a part of Alberti’s works. From Tomas More we will read some of his letters and excerpts from the Utopia. As an intermezzo, one session will be dedicated to the Neo-Latin elegy. The order of the readings is still to be considered.
